It may be a glitch but after changing the color of my Eglairs, the value went down to 100 and 200 coins. -Posted by Venuslovechain, 01/13/2007. Nokboy 18:57, 13 January 2007 (EST)
I tried it with all three color variations, and they all went down in value something in the 100 range. If this always happens we should add it to the main page. It could be a huge problem for anyone without 4400 coins to spare in the lose of value.
According to the devs, this is by design. Some variants are far less valuable than their base form. So the Eaglair variant values you're seeing are expected and not a glitch. You can read the post explaining the reason in this thread from the Xbox forums. -Nokboy 12:18, 2 February 2007 (EST)
It might not be a bad idea to list variants that lower value for every species. --Jimmcq 13:02, 2 February 2007 (EST)
Says the 3rd variant takes 4 bottles of milk. Wiki says 1. --Teker0 21:26, 27 February 2007 (EST)
