Are there any seasonal mutations in the animal kingdom?

Not sure about your terminology but white-tailed deer here are red in the summer and gray in the winter .

If you mean biological changes that occur seasonally, the answer is yes. Some birds change from summer to winter coloring in their feathers, and monarch butterflies experience the most remarkable type of such a seasonal change at the end of their breeding season up north, creating what's called a "supergeneration" which has a suppressed sexual drive (called diapause), larger than average wing span and heavier than usual abdomen for lipid storage to survive their overwintering dormancy in Mexico.

Nope,none at all.

No. But in some species the season in which an individual is born has an influence, and if you extrapolate that you invent astrology.
In crocodile eggs, the temperature even decides whether the crocodile will be male or female

Mutations are not seasonal. Period.
