Imagine that it’s a beautiful Sunday morning and you are relaxing in your garden. While you were taking the first sip of your morning coffee, you saw an uninvited guest coming towards your house. Now, what will you do? Oh no, wait, we are not talking about your friends, relatives, or neighbors but about raccoons. So, what would you do? Would you go near them or feed them? Well, that’s the two most important things you should NEVER do.
To understand more about this cute and adorable animal, we have talked to Dr. Suzanne MacDonald. She has done research with raccoons and knows a lot about them. She says that “Give them space, don’t feed them, and just enjoy their antics from a safe distance. If you feed them, they will come—and they will tell their friends. You will regret it, trust me!”
Till the time you are waiting for this cute animal to show up in your backyard, you can see the pictures of precious raccoons that we have found just for you. Scroll down and have a look.

She further said that “I wouldn’t say that makes them ‘smarter,’ but it certainly does make urban raccoons more likely to be able to open trash cans and get into our attics than rural raccoons. I can’t say whether these differences are innate or whether urban raccoons learn how to do those things, so the next step is to compare baby urban and rural raccoons on the same tasks to see if the differences exist from birth. This is easier said than done so it is taking several years to collect enough data”.

“A researcher over 100 years ago did a memory test to compare dogs, monkeys, raccoons, and children, and he claimed that the raccoons and kids were the smartest! Certainly, raccoons are not evil geniuses, and they don’t compare with humans in terms of brainpower. Dogs are pretty special, too, because they evolved with humans and so are exquisitely tuned to human behavior. Raccoons have their own kind of smarts, not really the same as any other animal,” she said.
