This is what a hairless raccoon looks like

Delightful! (Via Reddit)


    1. I think I’m projecting the look of “Dude, WTF?” onto the face of his raccoon buddy.

  1. So while hairless bears look even scarier without their fur, hairless raccoons still look deceptively cute.

    Hairless cats are the perfect in-between, equal parts of cute and repulsive.

    1. My first thought was that it still looks like it weighs 50 lbs. and could take a finger off.

    1. ought to establish a website:   “(almost) naked animals”

      Rule 34. Someone’s probably got a whole fetish site dedicated to coon-tang.

    1. We’ve been seeing a fox with a hairless tail in the neighborhood and have assumed it’s mange too.  Sad to see no hair on his tail.  How does he keeps his nose warm?

  2. Poor thing in the bottom pics looks like its got mange. Don’t worry about killing with fire. If that’s the case he’ll keel over from chronic skin infection or maybe hypothermia.

    1. Hopefully somebody will treat it. If not for the raccoon’s sake then because once mange gets established plenty of animals can get it.

    2. The Reddit consensus is that it’s not mange because he doesn’t appear to have scratched his skin off along with his hair. I’m fond of the theory that it’s hormonally-induced baldness from scarfing down too many discarded birth control pills.

  3. It certainly looks cuter completely bald than looking half-eaten. This is actually a good opportunity for someone to knit him a little burglar costume.

  4. I’ve often wondered why we, as hairless animals, are so freaked out by other hairless animals.  A friend of mine coined the term “unfuzzy valley” to describe this feeling. 

      1. I’m not much for sweet and meat in the same dish, but a nice persimmon pie after the raccoon stew would be perfect!
