Raccoon babies playing ball
In honour of Mother's Day, Sally and her three kits were playing their version of football. This exercise was not only to give them an enrichment project to explore something novel, but allowed us the ability to view their body mechanics as one appeared to be limping.
All three kits have since been weaned a couple months ago. They were eating while playing with the ball. It came as a surprise when they know how to make use of the ball to get food. Maybe they have been trained for a long time to have this desirable skill. So talented!
