Raccoons Eating Oats

Raccoon Video Clips

(Replays Automatically - With Sound)

Notice that both the baby and mother raccoon feel inside the dish for pieces of rolled oats. As they are feeling for food, they are looking elsewhere. It appears their sensitive hands are being used as an extra set of eyes.

In the video clip, you can also hear them communicating with each other.
