Raccoon. (taken through glass and light from outdoor motion detector lights ) These critters climb with great ease and are not bothered by a drop of 35 to 40 feet! Raccoons have a highly developed tactile sense. Their human-like forepaws (complete with 5 fingers) are used to pick up food with their front paws before putting it in their mouth. Just like you do. Notice that much like a humans hand and foot, these little critters have five fingers and toes also. It helps make them excellent climbers as well as incredible adapt at opening trash lids and containers you have laying around of all sorts. And yes, of course, it makes them more than capable of getting into your attic by ripping holes in the roof! IMG_5106
