Do other mammals get gray hair?

    Do other mammals besides humans get gray hair as they age? Or is it a uniquely human thing for hair to turn gray?

    Yes, other mammals get grey hair, all of my dogs that got old, for instance, got gray hair on their muzzles.

    White-tail deer get whiter as they age, too.
