Raccoons. You can’t just take it and pass by the cutest animals! We have prepared a post for the adoration of these amazing creatures: catch a selection of interesting facts and photos!
#1 North America – the birthplace of raccoons! This is confirmed by archaeological excavations.
#2 The raccoon paw print is very similar to the print of a human hand.
#3 Seeing the enemy, the raccoon will try to escape. If this does not work out, the animal will pretend to be dead.
Disagree. Opossums will play dead, but raccoons will charge and attack!
I agree vernie!
#4 Fluffy creatures are quite lazy. They do not dig minks for themselves, but prefer to use someone else’s “housing”.
#5 In America, raccoons are called “kings of garbage cans”! In search of something tasty, they manage to open the lids of the container with their fragile paws.
They are sometimes refered to as Trash Pandas
#6 Raccoons are immune to many infectious diseases.
Disagree! They can get canine and feline diseases plus rabies! Opossum aren’t susceptible to many diseases. Not even rabies!
The biggest disease for raccoons is distemper and of course rabies.
