I photographed this Cinnamon Raccoon yesterday at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. It was walking on the side of the road heading to a pool of water. I was able to get a few quick photos before it disappeared into the thick brush. I did get a glimpse of it a few minutes later looking for food in the water.
This is my second time seeing a Raccoon this color. Last year I got a glimpse of one near this same location. I was unable to get a photo of it at that time and never saw it again. When I drive past this area I am always watching for it and it paid off this time.
I did some research in reference this Raccoons color but I didn't find much. People have posted a few photos of blonde and red Raccoons.
