Raccoon Nation

Full Episode

Watch the full episode of the PBS Nature film, Raccoon Nation.

Are human beings, in an effort to outwit raccoons, actually making them smarter and unwittingly contributing to their evolutionary success? Are the ever more complex obstacles that our fast-paced urban world throws at them actually pushing the development of raccoon brains? In this film, scientists from around the world share their thoughts and work to explore this scientific theory. Attempting to do something that has never been done before, they closely follow a family of urban raccoons as they navigate the complex world of a big city. Buy the DVD or Blu-Ray. Raccoon Nation premiered February 8, 2012. (Video limited to U.S. & Territories.)
