    Default Raccoons: A Natural History

    Raccoons: A Natural History
    by Samuel I. Zeveloff





    Pages: 240 pages
    Publisher: Smithsonian Books
    Edition: 2002
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-1588340333

    Description

    The word raccoon is drawn from the Native American Algonquian language. Their term arakun roughly translates to "he who scratches with his hands." Anyone who has found a raccoon rummaging around in a once securely closed trash container can attest to how skillful raccoons are with their front paws. In fact, they have four times as many sensory receptors in their forepaw skin as they do in their hindpaws-a ratio similar to that of human hands and feet. Samuel Zeveloff explores this trait and much more in his accessible natural history of raccoons.

    Enjoy!
