Raccoons are small but intelligent predatory animals.
Raccoons are small but intelligent predatory animals. They learn very quickly and have a good memory. They are active at night, when they feed on small animals such as insects, beetles, worms, fish, but also on plants, fruits and nuts. Before winter arrives, raccoons eat enough to put on a thick layer of body fat.
With their slender fingers, raccoons can even lace up shoes.
