savannah serval nose question

I have a pretty simple question I have seen lots of servals with solid black noses but some have red in center. So, if i have cat with a red in center nose but very black around does this mean he has a serval nose and could pass a solid black nose on to his kittens if bred with another black nosed savannah? Also do all silvers have a somewhat darker nose?

A black brown spotted tabby can have anything from a black nose to a brick or pink colored nose with black outline. Many people prefer black noses because that seems more reminiscent of the Serval, and your cat could definitely pass a black nose down to his kittens, especially if bred to another black nosed cat.
