The two I refer to as the 'twins'. These are the two very tiny but scrappy little raccoons that suddenly appeared outside the Retreat last summer - without a mom! Later they joined a slightly older group of youngsters that appeared almost very night. Oddly enough, though much smaller than the others they were accepted as part of the group. The smallest one (on the right in this photo) was actually very dominant of the whole gang. the small one is also the most inquisitive and seems to be quite willing to become friends with me. (And so far ONLY me). The other larger chappie is actually quite timid.I have no idea of their sex. Time to give them names, I think.
