Because apparently it's frowned upon to post random pictures of adorable raccoons in the abortion thread.

Post your pictures of adorable (and not-so-adorable, we don't discriminate!) raccoons here!

I'll get us started:

THE MANY MOODS OF THE RACCOON:

Suspicious:


Extroverted:


Remorseful:


Entertained:


Silly:


Pensive:


Inquisitive (he's raising his hand to ask a question):


Surprised:


Amused:


As you can see, raccoons are very complex creatures that are fun to anthropomorphize. So come on, join it!

Yes, to some degree, but it's not a good idea. They're too smart and too capable of getting into things. They end up being very destructive and mischievous and difficult to deal with.

Although raccoons are cute, I find them scary.
Where i used to live, I was afraid to take out the trash.

Pixie, I adore that pic, too! I love interspecies friendships! Somehow the cuteness of both species is amplified by their proximity!

I wondered if they were vicious towards humans? We have foxes here that try and scavenge rubbish but they are usually very timid when they see people.

An old lady at my apartment had to be taken to the hospital. I never found out exactly how badly she was hurt, but she'd accidentally surprised one of them... I met someone who'd been attacked, when I was a child, so I already knew it happened and always tried to make a lot of noise when taking out my trash or walking around dark corners at night, but I did get sort of hissed at one time. Lil' devils.
