​Raquel's Ark

There are two types of raccoon in Panama.  The Caribbean side has the larger crab eating raccoon and the Pacific side has the smaller raccoon that eats small fish found in rivers and streams.  At Raquel's Ark we are able to combine several animal species in the same enclosure.  I found that raccoons will defecate and urinate in water.  They also use the water to wash their food so I am required to keep fresh water running and to empty the pond whenever it because contaminated.    The raccoon enjoys fish that it can catch in the water.   Dry dog food and fresh fruit.
