Scout - Raccoon
DOB: Spring 1998
Weight: 19.4 lbs.
Scout was taken as an illegal pet. She can be identified by a small notch on her ear (an old injury from an apparent scuffle).
Scout has been successfully trained to respond to various requests from her keepers. Curious, energetic and greedy animals are good candidates for training, as they never tire of treats and are eager to work to get them.Raccoons are omnivores and get a diet of meat, vegetables, fruits, greens and even nuts. At feeding time keepers have the option of putting the raccoons in separate lock-up cages while cleaning the exhibit. If the doors to their lock-ups are not secured, Scout easily uses her front paws to lift the gate. She is quick to come out to see what new thing might be in her home and if there is anything to eat or explore.
