“I’m sorry for breaking into this townhouse, my mom showed me how to do it!”
Raccoons are one of the few animals that actually learn from their successes and failures. They repeat their successful behaviours and in the case of a mother raccoon, they pass this behaviour on to their young. I enjoy the challenges that are faced with when working alongside these highly intelligent critters.
This photo was taken back in May of this year.
