I'm used to seeing these guys in town. Either this is a young raccoon, or the forest version isn't as plump as their city kin.
I first thought that an old forest next to the ocean shore would be rich with food for such a scavenger. But maybe it doesn't measure up to the contents of dumpsters and compost bins in town.
Raccoons can live as long as 16 years in the wild. Most don't make it past their second year, when they become independent of their mother.
After that, raccoons are solitary animals. They are also nocturnal, though this one had some business keeping it up during the day.
I love their hands. Little primate-style hands on a rodent (I read that they are more closely related to panda bears than anything, but still).
