What is the cutest animal in the world? One might vote for a cat, another will raise a hand for a little puppy, but Elena from Moscow was always fond of raccoons. When she was just a kid, she often observed them playing in the zoo for hours. Time was passing, and little Elena became a zoopsychologist. So, 5 years ago, she turned her cottage house outside Moscow into a so-called raccoon museum. She placed all her raccoon memorabilia there and invited four sporty raccoons to live with her. They called the place “The Racoon House”.

The raccoons have long nails and they love scratching. So, when you come in, wear long clothes and be ready to have little scratches everywhere. No worries, the raccoons here are friendly and fun!
