Mrs. Raccoon teaching her kit to climb.

A mother raccoon repeatedly grabs her four-week-old kit by the neck and positions it on a tree, keeping her offspring safe from falling.

According to wildlife biologists, raccoons and many other mammals learn by imitating their mothers. This footage was taken in a backyard in Port Townsend, Washington.
