I have photographed a cinnamon-colored Raccoon before (Cinnamon Raccoon In Oklahoma and Cinnamon Raccoon Moving Through Brush). This is the first time seeing a Raccoon with just a cinnamon-colored tail. This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

How I Got The Photo: Raccoon With Cinnamon-colored Tail

This Raccoon had a young Raccoon with her, and they were near the curve west of the 4-way intersection. 

I had my camera resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
