This video shows you how raccoons are not as vicious as they seem.
When people think of raccoons, they think of filthy beasts that are nasty and just eat your garbage. Well they are very smart creatures. They are nocturnal. In the winter they sleep for extended periods, they do not completely hibernate though. They store an extra layer of fat for the winter. Raccoons love to eat: fruits, seeds, nuts, birds' eggs and plants. Raccoons are also excellent swimmers, hunting fish, frogs, and crayfish. They could maybe be an olympic swimmer.
