Raccoon

This raccoon looks like a bandit who is about to say "stick em up." I used to think of raccoons as animals you would expect to see in the north woods of the USA and Canada, but they are quite at home in the tropics as well.

Raccoons are nocturnal. When walking to dinner from our condo in Langosta, we often see raccoons walking along the side of the road on their way to dinner. They usually walk along in a solitary fashion or in a small group of a mother and her young. They like to eat frogs and crabs, and they use their very nimble fingers to forage through shallow water to pick out their food.

Tomorrow, I will show a photo from the place where the raccoons gather for dinner, and you will be surprised at who else gathers there to watch the raccoons. I will tease you with a hint: it is a much larger mammal.

Sharon, if this guy was trying to figure out what I was doing, that would make two of us.

He (or she) is so cute. Does not seem to be a bit afraid of you.
