What Does a Raccoon Paw Look Like?

Raccoon paws are eerily human-looking and have been the subject of a lot of speculation in the past since they resemble human hands so much. In fact, they are one of the most dexterous paws in nature, and for good reason too. Their paws have 5 dexterous fingers helping them to manipulate objects and food as seen in many urban places. Raccoons have been causing trouble for a long time because of this.

The raccoon is known as a great fisherman. The raccoon often enters shallow waters and wades through the water waiting for the perfect opportunity to catch fish. People who have ponds in their yards are, particularly at risk. Since raccoons are nocturnal animals, they are more active at night. Raccoons do not have an appetite only for fish but a range of animals that are often seen near waters such as frogs.

Raccoons are very problematic animals that use their intelligence to outsmart humans, their flexibility to intrude on our habitats, and their dexterity to feed themselves. The raccoons are an all-around threat because they have adjusted so well to urban life and know how to exploit it for their gains. Many raccoons invade the attic space in search of a warm and safe space away from the elements and predators. The attic space is such a convenient location that the mother raccoons often decide to give birth in these spaces twice a year. In the spring and the winter. Raccoons present in attic spaces can cause immense damage to the insulation and can compromise the health of the residents living in the property. Raccoons often find their way in by pushing or simply by tearing of the soffit.
