Started work on New Raccoon habitat
I have started the construction of a new habitat for my raccon this week. Will be a few weeks before I can find the time to finish it but I will keep you guys updated.
Do as I say. Not as I do.

Most common species here is North American raccoon Procyon lotor but we have a number of other close relatives as well including the crab eating raccoon Procyon cancrivorus. I think the species am keeping is the later of the two due to the short hair slender body it has.

Those little guys are very very smart if they are anything like the wild raccoons around here. I swear they can get into and out off anything they want. My uncle had one as a pet a few years back. That raccon was always finding a way out of his cage to go steal some food from the the other animals. Certainly one of the more interesting and entertaining pet he hadIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

You've got a raccoon? Very nice. It's amazing all sorts of pets people have on here. Good luck with the enclosure!"Can ye fathom the ocean, dark and deep, where the mighty waves and the grandeur sweep?" - Fanny Crosby

Isn't it funny how we love certain animals and not others...
And it seems we don't like the 'smart' ones...maybe we feel threatened?
