Portholes are raised (compared to the rest of the laterals) off-white/cream scales usually found along the laterals, but can be seen along the limbs also. They range in size, shape and quantity. White Portholes are not part of the dalmatian or tricolour trait. [1]

Portholes seem to be a localised reduction in pigmentation along a underlying lower-lateral stripe. Traits such as Lilly White can make this stripe completely visible with a complete lack of dark pigmentation in this region.
