hey, how big is your tail? can you do things with it? ^^
On average, a raccoon’s tail is 7.5 inches long! The tails can’t really do anything, but the rings confuse predators in the dark trees at night.
Edit: Thank you to @avoidantfutaba for pointing me to more research: The tail also helps with balance when climbing, fat storage for winter, and acts as a balance when raccoons are standing up like a people. You learn something new every day!
