A book by Jeff Richter on the white deer of Wisconsin was featured on PBS.

There are reports of black deer in Texas, photographed beautifully by Richard Buquoi.

And Georgia has the rare piebald deer sighting.

Isn’t nature amazing?

Mink and fox have color mutations in the wild too.

And farmers have developed many, many more by selectively breeding the animals, even creating a mink with spots called “jaguar mink.
