    I checked my trail camera recently and was surprised to see this guy. (My camera reset itself for some reason, and the date is wrong). I've seen and trapped a lot of raccoons before, but never one this color.

    Nice pictures, I have never seen a coon that color. It appears to be a fawn color, very neat. Thanks for posting.

    I've seen one in my neighborhood that is completely white. Very faint rings on the tail, but the rest is white. It's big, so it must be doing well.

    No pictures though. I have just seen it on the road a few times.

    Picture # 3 showing the contrast to the normal colored coon is very neat. I have seen pictures of the 'blondes' and albinos before, but have never seen them in the wild.

    Nice picture, looks like a red or cinnamon coloring.

    Raccoons can be found in grey, black, silver, red, blonde, cinnamon, white, cream and albino [​IMG] the unusual colors are more often found in captivity since it makes surviving in the wild harder.
