Part of our whimsical collection, Arden Creek's mount of a Raccoon paddling in a Birch Bark canoe is sure to liven up any space. Each animal is mounted here in the U.S.A. in our studio. The Birch Bark canoes are handcrafted by skilled local Native American artisans.
The Raccoon is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. Its grayish coat mostly consists of dense under fur which insulates it against cold weather. Two of the raccoon's most distinctive features are its extremely dexterous front paws and its facial mask, which are themes in the mythology of several Native American ethnic groups.
Raccoons are noted for their intelligence, with studies showing that they are able to remember the solution to tasks for up to three years.
