Is it black or chocolate? It's difficult to see in a photo, sometimes.

I will try an post another picture or 2 tonight when i have time but sure looks black or the other one is lighter than usual, like I mentioned I have never caught many of these but did notice the color difference compared to the other one.

Well it will be sold this Friday, one would think it should bring more but I doubt it. Hal, are those Otter possibly litter mates? The 2 I have were caught far apart from each other.

Might think about selling it to a taxidermist rather than on the fur market. From what I've seen, odd colors don't do as good on the fur market as they do in the Taxidermy market.

That would be an "Extra Dark" in otter lingo. Not a bad thing at this time
