Raccoon have 'hands'.

They have the ability to use their paws very much like a 'hand' With a highly developed tactile sense they can feel around in near total darkness and find even small bits of food. Unlike a dog or cat, they will pick the food up in their 'hand' and bring it up to their mouth. In that manner they can keep their head up so they can see or hear any potential danger.
