A raccoon walks through wetlands

Just a scraggly guy out for a daytime stroll.


We were out for a walk on Roosevelt Island shortly after everything shut down.

It’s funny, when you see videos of raccoons around people’s houses, they’re always look like big, fluffy stuffed animals. When you see one in a much more natural habitat, that doesn’t eat out of garbage cans, it tends to be a little scrawnier. This one was also quite small in general, so it was probably less than a year old.

I also posted a version of this on Instagram.
