Raccoons! Learn About Raccoons and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Raccoons) - Becky Wolff

Pictures: 4 Stars

Facts: 4 Stars


Today’s animal, Warm and fuzzy, Look and Learn review, is of Racoons!!  Plenty more coming. Raccoons remind me of my dad (who passed away 5 years ago). He used to feed them outside of the house.  Not sure why, I guess he just thought they were cute. I think they are adorable, even if a bit of a nuisance.  Anyway,  The opening photo of two racoons is too cute for words, even if its a little pixelated.   


Interesting facts:

    There are seven species of racoons.

    Raccoons have a large array of vocalizations.

    Racoons dens are often hollows in trees, rock crevices, burros of other animals

    Raccoons live around five years in the wild (20 years as captives/pets)

    Raccoons are distantly related to bears. Who knew???!!

    Raccoons are very sociable
