Raccoons are a familiar sight just about everywhere, and they will eat just about anything. They eat crayfish, frogs, and other aquatic creatures. On land, they pluck mice and insects from their hiding places and raid nests for tasty eggs. Raccoons also eat fruit and plants, including those grown in our garden. They will even open garbage cans to dine on the contents. They have definitly earned their nickname: Bandit. Cute as a button, eh?
