my sister took this at college in iowa. if you look close, you can see his teeth and he is smiling. i assume it is a he. our family loves racoons. this is because when we were little our dad would put piles and piles of any kind of food you can imagine in our back yard for families of racoons to come eat. the food was always piled high right outside of a sliding glass door so we would all watch as a mom and dad racoon brough their adorable baby racoons to feast. my dad always says that to this day, we raised eight generations of racoons. now you see why we all love racoons so much. racoons are my dad's favotie animal. more racoon stories to come soon. also, i am doing all these blog posts tonight to avoid doing my homework.
