Not SCIENTIFICALLY

But practically, taxidermists would think it's rare. Albinism and melanism are both "uncommon" traits passed through genetics. Scientists say that both occur equally, but finding a black beaver would seem more "uncommon" than an albino simply because albinos are so WHITE.


yea-yea

White Beavers

Are, as George mentioned, nearly equal to melanstic or black beavers by birth incidence. They are, however more rare due to the fact that they are much more obvious targets for predators with such a bummer birth-mark. Everything from horned owls to cougars are more apt to see and thereby capture the white standouts. I would imagine that there should be interest expressed by a museum. It seems a shame for a prize of that stature to wind up in a den for viewing by an individual and their pals. If I can find a home for it, I will be glad to mount it for an institution at no charge and surrender the fees to you for the pelt.

Albinos are about the same degree of strangeness as your TCP/IP numbers being the same as Don's. Whatever WHAT EVER is supposed to mean.

Makes one wonder who one can trust on here and who's not being deceptive.
