Raccoon

This shot was taken south of St. Cloud, Florida on Overstreet Road although raccoons live everywhere in Florida and eat just about anything. Did you know that the Indian word for raccoon is “arouchcoune” which means “scratches with hands”? Somewhat of a misnomer though as they do not actually wash their food but, instead, kneed and tear it with their claws.
