Raccoons (also known as “trash pandas”) are smaller relatives of bears. They are native to South and North America, but they can be found in Asia and Europe also. Raccoons are easily adaptable to various environments and can live in hollow tree equally happy as they can in abandoned cars. Their hands resemble that of human hands. They have five fingers and use their hands to collect food, open shells, door or trash cans… Raccoons often place food in water before they start to eat it because they have highly sensitive sense of touch and water increases sensitivity even more. By touching the food they get better insight about things they will eat. Seems sorta picky for a tiny bear that dumpster dives for food.Ethical sourcing is our number one priority.
