The question being asked in this film is - "Are people, in an effort to outwit raccoons, actually making them smarter and unwittingly contributing to their evolutionary success?" Are the ever more complex obstacles that our fast-paced, urban world throws at them actually pushing the development of raccoon brains?

We have Raccoons in my area

Comments about PBS NATURE: Raccoon Nation DVD:

I wanted to learn more about their behavior since they are able to break into my garbage cans by removing the bungie cords that were there to keep them out---I didn't realize there were so many in Chicago and NYC.

Raccoons Rule!

Comments about PBS NATURE: Raccoon Nation DVD:

This video gave me a lot of good information about raccoons, their evolution, their behavior, the secret life they have in the dark of night, and how very clever they are. I especially enjoyed watching their night time behavior, something I could only imagine before I bought the video.

I have been tending a youth to adult raccoon who has come to me every night at dusk to eat the cat's leftover food for more than a year now. She was a little runt with a slight limp and some hair pulled out of her back when she first arrived, but she was so bright eyed and bushy tailed as she showed up night after night I could not resist her. When I began to bring the food out to her, she showed me that she wanted to eat behind a tree so no one would bother her. When she had babies under the house this spring she bossed, fought with and gained control over all the other raccoons that came around. A slight growl from her and everyone behaves especially her babies.

I have watched her and interacted with her all this time wondering, is this how they are, is this what they do? Finally the answers were in this video which I gave myself for Christmas.

If you are interested in these little guys, this is the best information you can find. Now when I meet Missy and her babies for dinner and I sing their special song to call them, I tell her, thank you for letting me make you and yours a little bit smarter and doing my part towards the evolutionary success of Raccoon Nation.

Younger kids were interested but could not sit still thru the whole video, especially the scientific info. I really learned a lot and would buy this for gifts.

I purposely feed the raccoons

By bjwg

Comments about PBS NATURE: Raccoon Nation DVD:

Female raccoons are the most amazing mothers--All humans aspiring to
raise children should watch and learn from the raccoon. I feed them so I get to watch them most nights. I currently have a mother with four babies--a loaf of day old bread is a pretty cheap price for the entertainment they provide. Just remember they are wild animals, so stay behind closed doors and windows!

This program is a superb look at the life of the clever, resourceful and adaptable raccon, mostly filmed in the raccoon capital of North America (and the world), Toronto.
