This expression says it all. A raccoon at Port Louisa National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa tucks into a tree cavity during a windy afternoon. Highly adaptable, raccoons live in forests, mountain areas, marshes and urban centers all across the country. Appropriately nicknamed “masked bandits,” they use their human-like paws to get into areas off-limits to most animals and they’re excellent climbers. Hollow trees offer excellent shelter and a safe place to hide out. Photo of a pouty raccoon by Jessica Bolser, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
