Raccoons By:Madeline Kline

Raccoons are extremely intelligent creatures who get their hands on every little interesting thing they see. They make messes by digging in garbage cans and doing other damage by looking for food. Raccoons have very flexible toes so they are capable of digging in garbage cans and getting food. They are nocturnal so they are most active at night. Their mating season runs January through March. In the article About Raccoons it stated, “Because the male raccoon shows aggressive behavior toward the baby raccoons, the mother only tolerates him being around her during mating and then raises her young alone.” This shows how the mother takes on all the responsibility for taking care of her young. The babies stay with their mothers for about a year after they are born. Raccoons make many different noises such as hisses, whistles, screams, growls, and snarls. They do this when they and their young are in harm's way and for many other reasons. Raccoons are curious and intelligent creatures.
