Storyboard Text

  • THE SURVIVAL OF THE RACCOON
  • Please mother, tell us a story.
  • "Once upon a time, there was a raccoon with a very mysterious mask.   It helped her have better vision at night to sneak around and collect food to survive."
  • Raccoons are intelligent animals.  
  • They have adapted to be able to live in urban areas as habitats.  The mother raccoon raises the kits.
  • "They found a  beautiful garden house and moved in together.  They mated and had two little raccoon kits who liked their mother to tell them stories!"
  • Raccoons are not picky eaters!  They like fruits, plants, nuts, berries, insects, rodents, eggs and fish.  In urban environments, they often sift through garbage for food.
  • Honey! I found the best place for our anniversary dinner!
  • Mother! That's the story of how you met father!
  • The most important sense for the raccoon is its touch.  It's front paws are very sensitive and it is known as "the animal that scratches with it's hands".
  • "One night she met a male raccoon that was attracted to her. At first touch they fell in love."
  • A raccoon has few predators though the animal has been known to be attacked by bobcats and coyotes.Raccoons do not hibernate but can sleep in their den for weeks.  They make a variety of vocalizations including hisses, whistles, screams, growls and snarls. 
  • Due to it's adaptability, the raccoon has been able to multiply in urban areas  and adjust well to living alongside human beings—perhaps because when they live with us, they seem to learn from us.
