In the bottom of this picture you can see the reflective eyes of a female raccoon. Upon closer inspection we could see where she had removed the insulation from the drywall to bed down.
Raccoons can have green, yellow or blue reflective eyes. Their eyes see best in low light conditions such as at dusk and dawn. Animals of the night have eyes that are designed to help them see better in the dark, with a special surface just behind their retina called the tapetum lucidum that reflects small amount of light.
