If so, type of animal? Was it a full or partial albino?

Uncle caught an albino opossum several years ago. He donated it to a county wildlife display.

I take several albino snowshoe hares each year. They seem to be more common in the winter.


I have nothing clever to put here.

LOL, guy I know caught an albino muskrat in NY and had it mounted 50 or 60 years ago.
Gave it to me a decade ago.
After half a century of his 3 pack a day habit, it's yellow now.

Wife killed a piebald some years back.

I caught a white coon with a black mask and black tail rings the feet and nose were pinkish if I remember right that was about 40 years ago north of Knoxville IA. The coon was in a 220 about 5 miles further north I had a almost black Fisher coon in a watter set. I sold those 2 coon to Allen Gauph in Grimes IA. His son was a taxidermist I believe. He was a good buyer and an even better trapper he caught mountains of coon .

Shot a albino magpie a couple years ago. He didn't have pink eyes but kind of bluish grey colour. Was gonna get it stuffed but he was in pretty rough shape from the other magpies picking on him.

I found an albino raven in CA a few years ago. Never told anyone where it was because supposedly every indian in 500 miles would have to go bother it.
