Backyard Wildlife: Family of Raccoons

Mother raccoon with 3 babies

I took this photo of this mother Raccoon with 3 youngsters in my backyard. Raccoon’s are pretty big; it is somewhat amazing to me they manage to find enough to eat. I have seen individuals around over the years (not very often though) but only saw this family twice.

I continue to have many wildlife sightings in my backyard which is quite nice.

    Nice picture. We have a lot of raccoons in south Louisiana. They are very proficient at opening garbage cans. Everybody on the block had to tie the lids shut, to the dismay of the garbage men.

    I once saw the same thing near my apartment–1 mother, three babies. Later, what I like to believe was one of them came back every night to terrorize our cats. I think he thought it was funny–they’re quite intelligent!
