Raccoons and Seafood?

Postby Peacefulward » Thu Oct 12, 2017 11:19 pm

....DO NOT feed your raccoon any type of seafood they get aggressive if you do this.


Tiny Tracks states the following on their raccoon page. Is this true? I can't really think of any reason why it would be... They also say that if you own snakes, your fox will never bond with you. icon_confused.gif
5 Dogs, 2 cats, 2 leopard geckos, 1 guinea pig, 1 axolotl, and a coatimundi currently in my family. :)

Exotic "wishlist": red fox, arctic fox, gray fox, bat eared fox, fennec fox, mink, muntjac deer, owl (any species).

The fox-snake thing is debunked. Many fox owners keep snakes and other reptiles without a problem, including myself. Dave may have had a bad fox-snake experience, otherwise I'm not sure why he would think that. The raccoon thing I can't speak on since I don't know raccoons, lol.

I would think a raccoon would be healthier if you feed them seafood. However animals can sometimes get food aggressive if given something yummy and novel so he may have experienced something like that.

I've fed nessie seafood, while she isn't a huge fan out didn't make her aggressive.... she only gets mad when she knows shes doing something she shouldn't be lol

In my experience feeding a particular food doesn't effect aggression.. On the other hand trying to remove a particular food from them might. Chloe gets real possessive of her treats.

What about crab-eating raccoons would they be exempt from tiny tracks's rule/advice?

Yeah, I don't see a reason why seafood would make a raccoon (or any animal) aggressive.
