Yes, there are plenty of them. And the common, "academic" colouring is likely to be rather as #14150 has or of the kind. I usually happen to meet dark males mainly, but normally they shouldn't have been to.

Melanistic male!

Male and female. Melanistic male is on the right, while female is on the left (females are usually larger and less prone to melanism).
