Raccoons are intelligent and resourceful creatures – Clever trash-panda !

Raccoons are some of the most adaptable creatures in the Americas, occupying rural and urban areas in different climates. Here are some things you may not know about the little masked bandits.

1. IQ

One of the facts we found most interesting about raccoons is that they rank above the cat and just below monkeys mammal IQ scale. Monkeys are generally considered to mark just below humans and apes on the IQ scale, which means that intelligence raccoon is not as far behind us as we would think.

2. Evolving Intelligence

Based on several experimental studies based in Canada, scientists have observed that raccoons have tended to use the situation to further their intelligence. A series of dustbin lids were developed with the intention to keep the raccoons, and each progressive round, they were able to understand the craft and possibly open the trash. This indicates that humans evolved in more urbanized areas, raccoons have evolved with them, and are able to learn and store information for new experiences.

3. Domestication

Raccoons have proven capable of domestication, which is a simple feat for the average pet. Not only are they able to be domesticated, once domesticated, their owners are often able to teach them the skills of the average young human child would possess. Such a raccoon, Melanie, learned to ride a bike, clap, dance and ring a bell.

4. Lab Rat

Raccoons have been seen next to rats, mice and monkeys as the ideal animal for laboratory tests because of their remarkable intelligence. However, they were determined to be too strong will and even too smart for laboratory tests. They would often smarter than lab technicians and escape to hide in air vents and proved to be very defensive when they feel threatened.

5. Capacities of survival

Raccoons can survive and even thrive almost anywhere around the world, as it is a current source close to the water. They are located throughout Europe, North America and Asia, and are well known for their ability to protect themselves and their resourcefulness. This level of intelligence and adaptability is not in many other creatures and is yet another feature of raccoons that makes them stand out.

Although it may seem disturbing that raccoons are so smart, it also explains why they are so good at getting into trouble and sneaking into the trash. They might not be quite smarter than humans, but they are certainly not far behind; So if you find yourself facing one, do not try to outsmart; a professional.

East Germany still exists. In North America

There was an island that Fidel Castro, the socialist leader of Cuba, decided to give to East Germany as a gift. It was renamed Ernst Thalmann Island. When the treaty reuniting Germany was signed, it was never mentioned.

”Oh my god, this is terrible” you’re probably thinking. “There’s an uninhabited island that technically is East Germany. Who is going to fight off this communist island?”

Well, although America isn’t doing anything, not to fear, because the Republic of Molossia, with its 6 proud residents, are fighting them. You can even donate to buy war bonds to help end the fight against communist East Germany.
