Understanding the Hidden World of Scavenger Pests | Raccoon Nation | Wildlife Documentary. Welcome to WILDLIFE DOCUMENTARY - home of the best documentary films and documentary movies on wildlife, animals, nature, planet and universe. The raccoon (/rəˈkuːn/ or US Listeni/ræˈkuːn/, Procyon lotor), sometimes spelled racoon,[3] also known as the common raccoon,[4] North American raccoon,[5] northern raccoon[6] and colloquially as coon,[7] is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. The raccoon is the largest of the procyonid family, having a body length of 40 to 70 cm (16 to 28 in) and a body weight of 3.5 to 9 kg (8 to 20 lb). Its grayish coat mostly consists of dense underfur which insulates it against cold weather. Two of the raccoon's most distinctive features are its extremely dexterous front paws and its facial mask, which are themes in the mythology of several Native American ethnic groups. Raccoons are noted for their intelligence, with studies showing that they are able to remember the solution to tasks for up to three years.[8] The diet of the omnivorous raccoon, which is usually nocturnal, consists of about 40% invertebrates, 33% plant foods, and 27% vertebrates. The original habitats of the raccoon are deciduous and mixed forests, but due to their adaptability they have extended their range to mountainous areas, coastal marshes, and urban areas, where some homeowners consider them to be pests. As a result of escapes and deliberate introductions in the mid-20th century, raccoons are now also distributed across mainland Europe, Caucasia, and Japan. Though previously thought to be solitary, there is now evidence that raccoons engage in gender-specific social behavior. Related females often share a common area, while unrelated males live together in groups of up to four animals to maintain their positions against foreign males during the mating season, and other potential invaders. Home range sizes vary anywhere from 3 hectares (7 acres) for females in cities to 50 km2 (20 sq mi) for males in prairies. After a gestation period of about 65 days, two to five young, known as "kits", are born in spring. The kits are subsequently raised by their mother until dispersal in late fall. Although captive raccoons have been known to live over 20 years, their life expectancy in the wild is only 1.8 to 3.1 years. In many areas, hunting and vehicular injury are the two most common causes of death.

Nana is available for print ads, commercials, film, and other media work. If you are interested in using her for your project, please contact us: http://www.useyourclicker.com/need-a-trained-animal-actor.html Incredible dog tricks performed by my best friend: a Border Collie named Nana! From footstalls, to walking front paw handstands, to running backwards, Nana does it all. All of Nana's training is done exclusively with positive reinforcement and clicker training. Nana chooses to do all the behaviours in this video, and when she performs a trick, she is rewarded with lots of praise, toys, and treats. She loves what she does, and to her, "training" is all just a big game we play together! My goal with my training is to show the world that anything can be achieved with positive reinforcement! Remember always to use positive training methods with your dog. No video is sped up or reversed. Nana just likes to perform her tricks fast, and she really is walking backwards.
