Raccoons like shiny things.Like metal,silver,aluminum,foil. Raccoons are cute like baby bears.
I adore raccoons, and although I guess this book is dry and simply full of facts, that's how I believe books on the subject really should be. This book is not for the casual reader, but for the researcher who actually wants to know more about the animal and less about the fantasy story behind them.
I wanted a book to tell me facts and information about the raccoon and list many scientific studies and observations on this animal and that's exactly what I paid for.
