Raccoon mom & 4 babies crossing the road - MRSPark 3.7.14
This mom raccoon and her four large babies were crossing a road in Myakka River State Park.  Raccoons are cute and delightful but can be big trouble around the backyard where they raid garbage cans, eat the dog food, flip over bird baths, sleep in the attic and generally raise havoc.  The loving care shown by this mom of her large brood shows how parental care transfers knowledge from one generation to the next.
