Raccoon | The Salt Marsh


It ís a raccoon! Raccoons often feed near water and frequently visit the salt marsh during low tide.  Raccoons are omnivorous and eat many different plants and animals. In the salt marsh, they often eat crabs, shrimp, and fish. Their fingertips are very sensitive, and they often hold their food under water and move it around in order to feel it better. They are, in turn, eaten by alligators, and the young are sometimes eaten by great blue herons.
