Postcard of a Raccoon (Procyon lotor). Native only to the Americas, the raccoon is a nocturnal, solitary animal. It spends most nights foraging for food along stream banks. Raccoons sometimes appear to wash their food, however, they are actually wetting their paws to increase their sense of touch as they knead and tear their food, feeding for inedible material. Females prefer to nest in hallow trees or other protected places. Photographer- Karen McClymonds North America Wildlife Postcard size 4 x 6  Get Yours Here!
