Swimming raccoons

Who knew raccoons could swim?

I certainly didn’t. I knew they dabbled their paws in the water, but I didn’t know that they were comfortable swimming. For some reason I thought they hated getting wet – I guess I was wrong ๐Ÿ™‚ I had just ridden my bike past the northern end of the aquarium and spotted these two masked bandits looking suspicious. I turned around and stopped to grab a couple of photos just as the first pushed off in the water. The second one seemed more hesitant, but eventually swam off too. So now I know that raccoons can swim. And so do you ๐Ÿ™‚
