The big kids.

The big boys are HUGE! All 5 boys with attitude are at least 10 lbs. and ready to go as soon as we set up a release site. The 5 NCIS kids will be waiting a little longer at just around 6 lbs. It is one big rambunctious crew though!
A little sibling rivalry......

Gerry is very good at relaxing.
Look what a big beautiful boy he is!
The younger one's still love a snuggle here and there.
Is there a treat in there or not!?
It's like a hammock and the dinner table!

Is it any wonder why I call it the laughing raccoon? You'll find this is a very common expression among happy coons!
The now destroyed papasan chair frame.....I've got to start working on a hammock made out of the fire hose we got!

I never get tired of watching them play....they are sooooo good at it and obviously enjoy themselves thoroughly!


  1. Deanna, can you please send me an e-mail. I'd like to talk to you about something. :)
    And as usual, you have captured the most adorable poses and expressions on these little guys!

  2. They are so adorable and I love their expressions! You've captured great photos. How can you capture photos of these raccoons with such great quality? They are moving constantly and to top this up, they are fast. May I ask what kind of camera you are using? Are you a photographer besides being a full time rehabilitator?

  3. Believe it or not it's just an old kodak easy share! But is has a great action setting which works great for active raccoons! Like I told Kristy....with a digital camera you can take tons of pics and a few are bound to be good! LOL The camera is pretty beat up now and I am looking into a nicer camera for wildlife photography...I would like to learn a little more about it and get into it. Then if the tax returns are good next year maybe........
