What are raccoons? Anonymous 08/22/2022 (Mon) 16:00:43 No.626
Let's have a thread where we learn about raccoons. I want to know everything that is humanly possible to know about them.

I have a chapter from Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia on raccoons and their allies.

>>627 >>628 Thanks for this
>>627 Red pandas are now considered part of their own family, Ailuridae.
>>633 How do they decide that? Is there some adaptation that everyone in procyonidae shares but red pandas lack?
>>645 Usually it's just decided by genetics, and it seems to be the case with Auliridae too from what I've read.
>>628 > Although historically believed to wash their food before eating, this habit is a myth and simply the result of raccoons often searching for and handling aquatic food with their dexterous forepaws. What? Is this true?
>>649 They definitely do like to put their food in the water, maybe it's not to wash it but just for fun, or because something compels them
