Blackish tranny fluid????

Just changed my tranny fluid and I have a feeling it was the first time its been done. For some reason I thought they had to change the tranny fluid when they replaced my clutch but I found out otherwise.

My question, why would my tranny fluid be blackish/brown? There really wasnt any red color to it?

I think because of the same reason that engine oil changes to black.

I guess I didnt think it turned black over time. I just thought it wore out. That makes me feel better.
