Dark brown I think.

 

Fahrenbach's microscopic examination of hair samples showed unusual globular bodies of red pigment within the hairs regardless of "main color" so I would expect the hair, with light behind it, would show strong red highlights.  

 

Of the two I've seen, one had a charcoal appearance against a black shadow background.   It was also wet.   I don't really know what color it was, it just absorbed the light of our old incandescent headlights.   The other was .. well, cinnamon would be a good label.   Dark red-brown, dark brown with prominent red, hard to explain I guess.  Like an irish setter dog sort of, but not exactly.

I heard Matt Pruitt talk about larger ones being predominantly gray across North America recently on the podcast NAWAC have, with the South African guy.

 

I get the feeling he said that to suit his own narrative rather than relaying any worthwhile data, especially as it seems that have a big gray one regularly around the NAWAC base, or maybe he just felt the need to give an answer as the guest of the show put him on the spot, i don't know. Perception v Reality ?

 

With 1,127 Reports describing animals of 8ft and above we see the following numbers.

 

26% were described as Black
36% were described as Dark/Dark Brown
18% were described as Brown
9% were described as Gray/White/Yellow/Beige

 

With 281 Reports describing animals of 9ft and above we see the following numbers.

23% were described as Black
35% were described as Dark/Dark Brown
22% were described as Brown
11% were described as Gray/White/Yellow/Beige.

 

Would love to know why he said what he said, feel free to chime in Matt if you're reading.

The answer, for all sighting reports, regardless of height is:

When entering SSR reports, I use cinnamon when they describe "Reddish Brown" and I do think of it as the shade of an Irish Setter. A lot of those reports could probably just as easily been labeled brown.

The one I saw was light brown, like a paper bag or cardboard. This is about a match.

Funnily enough Red that red setter type colour was not too dissimilar to the one i saw also, i always had it in my head as 'chestnut' kind of thing.
