    I guess this is a form of melanism. Some lucky hunter got this. 1A97C1D7-1DD9-4587-BDDA-CFD8D1BF5F40.jpeg

    According to the Hudson Bay Fur Company only a few of these were caught between 1700-1900 and they haven’t heard of one in the last 100 years until this one.

    Wow, That is a beautiful cat.
  11. Would they call that a brindle?
  12. Saw a pic of this cat on a hunting site. Very neat looking indeed.
  13. And is there someone else's photo stuffed?

    No, brindle is a color pattern that is most often seen in canines. It creates stripes (sometimes looking like tiger stripes). Dutch shepherds are a good example of a breed that often displays brindle markings.
