Fun fact: Raccoons love washing their food in the nearest body of water. Why? No one knows! Does it soften their paws? Is it an automatic behavior carried over from when they used to rely on sea creatures for their diet? No idea! But one thing's for sure, raccoons are surprisingly hygienic! So if you ever find yourself at a diner and you notice a Raccoon hard-at-work in the kitchen making your chocolate chip pancakes, have no fear! This lil' critter was sure to wash his hands thoroughly!
