The raccoon is a medium sized mammal native to North America. It looks like it's wearing a mask. Its diet consists of a number of foods: insects, worms, fruits and nuts, also fish, amphibians and bird eggs.
And, let me tell you, they can be mean. One evening, we saw three raccoons, mama, daddy, and baby raccoon, on our patio, eating the cat food. So my husband went outside to run them off. I can't remember whether he took a stick or anything, it's been years ago. The mama and baby ran, but daddy stayed back and I think he would have attacked my husband who quickly ducked back into the house. I think the daddy was giving his family time to escape. What do you think?
