Blind Mother Raccoon Thrives In The Urban Jungle
Blind Mother Raccoon Thrives In The Urban Jungle How do these raccoons adapt so quickly with a disability and not only survive but also thrive? When a raccoon looses a sense such as their sight or a portion of it, their animal instinct kicks in and they immediately know what to do. They start relying on their other senses to survive. For example, raccoons have very sensitive hands with long fingers, toes and nails. Only humans and other primates have similar numbers of receptor cells found in their hands. Suzanne MacDonald from York University stated “they can get an image of what an object is without even looking at it, so the raccoons actually see with their hands.” Raccoons are great problem solvers that adapt easily to new environments and objectives. A change to their physical being such as loosing a limb or loosing their sight, may not be as big of a challenge to a raccoon as we may think. Please give this video of thumbs up if you enjoyed it!
