Raccoons wash their food before eating it.
Raccoons find some of their prey in streams, ponds, and lakes. And they often move their paws around in the water, feeling for crayfish, frogs, and fish. It may look as if they're washing their food, but they're not. They're catching it!Raccoons also eat fruit, acorns, corn, worms, bird eggs, and even garbage without washing them.
