I do like raccoons [ a.k.a. "Procyon lotor" ].

Yes indeed. Watched and iteracted with them numerous times.

Intelligent animals (as per the Wikipedia article on them shown below) :


"Raccoon Intelligence"

Only a few studies have been undertaken to determine the mental abilities of raccoons, most of them based on the animal's sense of touch.

In a study by the ethologist H. B. Davis in 1908, raccoons were able to open 11 of 13 complex locks in less than 10 tries and had no problems repeating the action when the locks were rearranged or turned upside down.

Davis concluded that they understood the abstract principles of the locking mechanisms and that their learning speed was equivalent to that of rhesus macaques (type of primate / monkey).

Studies in 1963, 1973, 1975, and 1992 concentrated on raccoon memory and have shown that they can remember the solution to tasks for up to three years. In a study by B. Pohl in 1992, raccoons were able to instantly differentiate between identical and different symbols three years after the short initial learning phase.

Stanislas Dehaene reports in his book The Number Sense that raccoons can distinguish boxes containing two or four grapes from those containing three.
