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

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
