This Mother Raccoon Bites Her Baby’s Head…But You’ll Never Guess Why!
Everyone likes baby animals. Their huge eyes, big heads, and teeny tiny paws just make us want to hug them and cuddle them until they’re all grown up! There is just something about babies that make us instinctively think, “oh, how cute!”
Watching a baby raccoon learn to climb a tree is one of those moments. Watch his head flop back and forth! He can’t seem to figure out how gravity works, but his mother just keeps trying! Over and over, she tries all different angles to help her baby finally learn how to climb a tree.
When she notices that she is being watched, she hides her cub and checks out the strange human taking a video, but decides that they are not a threat and keeps teaching her little one. After what seems like forever, he finally latches on to the tree and gives mommy raccoon a much needed rest!
Similar to how a mommy bird will toss her chicks out of the nest to teach them to fly, this raccoon mother just tosses her baby at the tree and tries over and over to get him to grab a hold of the bark and figure out how to do it for himself.
this touching moment really made my day! To see this triumphant baby raccoon cub finally learn how to climb his first ever tree made my morning so much better! You can almost feel mom’s relief when he finally figures it out.
