    We Have Trapped Several Racoons In The Last Few Weeks And Relocated Them. Last Night We Trapped An Albino Baby Coon. Eyes Were Red With A White Mask. He Was A Pale Beige All Over With Sort Of Apricot Rings Around His Tail. He Was Sent To Live In A Petting Zoo Exhibit.

    We use to have raccoons as pets. [​IMG] they were grey (standard color) red, blonde, albino, and apricot in color. The Albino and blonde were the friendliest of the group wanting to be held and scratched. The grey would take dum-dum Lilly pops from your hand and purr in thanks. Of course they went with the many colored skunks we also had. As well as silver, artic and platinum fox.

    I used to see one on VandenBurg AFB during the six months I was in training there. One albino baby in a litter of all normal babies. Seemed like I saw that litter almost everyday on my way to school every morning.
