Raccoon

Procyon Lotor

Although found in the pet trade, their aggression, and human-transmissible diseases make them a poor pet. Their mask and ringed tail are helpful camouflage during nocturnal foraging for insects, eggs, vegetation and small animals. They often dip their food in water, although the reasons why are not clear.
