My taxidermist seemed to think they are pretty rare but said I may be able to catch more in the same location.

Only albino or off color I ever saw was a white woodchuck. Too bad it was road pizza and unsalvageable

There's likely pretty good demand in the taxi circles! Put them up and sell on the shed.

Iíve never seen one other than photos. Several years ago I saw a photo online of a guy (I think he was a hound hunter) with the mounts of an albino raccoon and an almost jet black raccoon next to each other. It was a pretty cool comparison!

That silver raccoon is absolutely wild! Iíve never seen or heard of one like it. Please post a photo of the mount when you get it back!

Congrats on some great catches!

Ah, that makes sense. I appreciate the info very much! Are they very common in your area? We have a ridiculous number of coins but Iíve never seen or heard of anything but standard, expected color.

Animal anomalies fascinate me.

Dad got a white one on a game camera several years ago but not sure it was albino

Never heard of a silver coon before, I would have had it mounted too

Caught another one today in a beaver drowning set. Pretty muddy in the pic but a white one none the less. Unfortunately this one has a spot of fur up around one front shoulder that is missing. Not sure if Iím gonna be able to do anything with him. Got him hanging to dry to se what it is gonna look like.

Pretty cool. Looks like you found a melanistic family.
Wonder if you'll see some next year or next litter too?


Who is this roadkill monitor^^^^? I guess it must be an issue in other states, folks posting roadkill pickups as trap catches? Not a common issue in Wyoming I don't think.

There is plenty more Albinos around. These four coons were all caught on four different farms

Nice, but donít you hate those climbers.
I use a fence staple to prevent that, depending on the tree bark type.

Treed one a good 25years ago and sold it to my uncle who was a taxidermist a friend got one trapping in the same area a few years ago and had it mounted, caught a blond a few years ago and it finally made it to the taxi man and hope to have it back soon
