Raccoon after a victorious hunt This raccoon and its two siblings were hunting grasshoppers along the side of the trail. I saw this one and one other catch one each.<br />
Unfortunately, I scared one of the two who had managed to catch a grasshopper away and he left his catch behind (hopefully he can forgive me, though, because I was a bit dehydrated and rushing back to the water fountain... stupid me didn&#039;t factor in the return trip when rationing my water...).

  1. Such a smart and flexible species. With a cute look as a bonus, which it will definitely use to its advantage. Posted 4 years ago
