Common Raccoon (Procyon lotor)

26 June 2016
Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland
County Road 2560
Wise County, Texas

Common Raccoon found its way into this observation in the most surprising manner. We were nearly done photographing the second Greater Roadrunner on County Road 2560 as we'd just left the LBJ National Grassland, and then out of nowhere it seemed appeared on stage this Common Raccoon mother with a litter of three of its young (cubs/kits) who were absolutely intrigued by the challenges presented by the cattle guard that appears in the image. By this time the Greater Roadrunner that had led us to stop in the first place had disappeared, gone its own way, and for a minute, mother and youngsters, hung out giving us a few looks before they too took their exit starting their foraging expedition early before nightfall. Common Raccoon is an authentic resident of the Western Hemisphere. LBJ National Grassland is administered by the US Forest Service, US Department of Agriculture.

Genetic studies have shown that the closest relatives of raccoons are the ring-tailed cats and cacomistles of genus Bassariscus, from which they diverged...
