    It's genetics, it's not exactly a lottery as it's hereditary but some colour variations would be dominant and some recessive.
    In different parts of the country they have different predominant colours. In tas they're almost all black, in Vic I've seen two black ones in my life. White and menil are the rarest.

    Seasonally the normals turn grey through the winter.

    Genetics mate, i have learnt them as Common (normal), Melanistic (Black), White (white lol) and menil.

    I have yet to shoot, or see for that matter, a white one but have the rest in my belly
