A New Critter!!
I just happened to look out my bedroom window last night and saw what I thought was the fox. But when I shined the flashlight on him he seemed to be fatter and his ears looked small. His back was to me at that time. His fur was a light brown. So I got my camera and made a noise so he'd move and that is when I realized it was a Raccoon!! I haven't seen a Raccoon out here in years. I opened the window and he didn't run too far so I got these pictures. He even seemed to pose for me. I think he is a handsome fella. I heard skunks squeeling when I opened the window and saw one chasing another off in the distance. One skunk was right next to the Raccoon when I first shined the light on them. Guess nothing bothers with the skunks except for they themselves. They seem to get mad at each other a lot and when they do it stinks around here. I was reading about skunks and it says that the females get mad at the males sometimes if they try to get near them and will spray at them.
