About Pest Animal Saint Paul and Our Services:
The raccoons will not necessarily have to jump in order to reach the high areas. They have sharp claws that helps them get a good grip on almost any type of surfaces. They are also agile creatures and they have a hand like monkeys that helps them scale vertical surfaces. If they can jump fences or house, they will not end up stuck in our dumpster. However, there are also videos online showing that when they are threatened, they will choose to jump.
Raccoons Hop and Climb
Raccoons do not have the incredible jumping ability of some urban mammals. They can at least hop and cover a short distance. In order to get their hands on the treats that are above the ground, they will look for something that they can climb. Climbing is not just the amazing feat that the raccoon can do. They are armed with different characteristics that helped them survive in different settings.
This animal does not have the jumping prowess of the feline creatures. Nonetheless, they can still hop a few feet horizontally. However, they will not rely on this skill when they are hunting for food or looking for shelter. They are equipped with amazing abilities to make up for it.
How Well do Raccoons Climb
You probably saw the video of the raccoon that is scaling a 25-story building. The raccoon probably thought that it was trapped and the only way to escape the situation is to keep going up. The raccoon was able to reach the top of the building where it was given with a free cat food and a cage. We do not recommend the feeding of the raccoon since they can develop an aggressive behavior. They also need to develop their hunting skill to survive on their own in the wild.
Adaptability Skill of Raccoons
During the past few years, urbanization has eliminated the natural habitat of the raccoons. This has turned the woodlands into a residential community. While some of the creatures has suffered for this development, study shows that the raccoons have successfully adapted to the life in the urban jungle. New garbage bin is being introduced in the market every year to control the scavenging habit of the raccoon but the animal shows that they can learn and adapt just to access the food inside.
Super Sense of the Raccoon
Apart from their adaptability and climbing skills, the raccoons also have extremely sensitive senses. When compared with other urban mammals, this animal will have at least 4 times more sensory cells found in their paws. Around 75% of their brain that will process sensory signal would be dedicated to the touch. In fact, they will be able to determine the thing that they are holding without even looking at the item.
These are just some of the astounding characteristic of the raccoon that make up for their poor jumping ability. These skills make them a formidable urban mammal and help them survive in a range of areas.
