Scavengers of the Night

Series: Animals After Dark

By Elaine Landau

You might be surprised to learn that there is more to raccoons then raiding garbage cans and gardens. These nighttime animals can see very well in the dark. Raccoons are also great climbers and swimmers. And they can be very nasty when cornered! RACCOONS: SCAVENGERS OF THE NIGHT explores the history of these animals, where they live, what they eat, and how they raise their young.
