    Is this an albino raccoon?

    H'mm, same photo as ACH000a7bl.

    The white one looks a lot like the opossum that Mason identified in ACH000a71w.

    Someone pointed out a while back that the correct term is "leucistic".

    We can't tell whether this guy is leucistic or albino from this image. Each means something else 😕
