I think only some states will allow you to have a raccoon as a pet, so you have to do some research before diving in. Also, just don't grab one in the wild! This raccoon was domesticated while a baby.Source: YouTube
Raccoons are great when they are babies, but they don't stay young for long. They grow up fast, and when they do, they become very stubborn. This is because they are preparing to leave there mom when they are out in the wild. They are trying to figure things out for themselves because they will be on there own very soon.
Even at the three month mark raccoons are definitely considered babies, but this is when they start getting out of hand. They like to do what they want, and that usually means not doing what you want them to do. It is very important that you cut out any unwanted behaviors at this time because they are still small and impressionable. They won't be for very long, and if you let these behaviors go unchecked, when they are full grown adults it will become a massive problem. Things that are cute when they are little, such as ear biting, isn't as cute when they are adults. They can easily bite through your ear, lip, or fingers.
Raccoons are extremely strong animals so its important to have them behaving the way you would want them to when they are young so they will be more tame when they are older.
