If any animal could be a pickpocket (扒手), it would be a raccoon (浣熊)! Raccoons have special paws (爪子) that are very much like human hands. They have five toes (趾) on each of their front paws. So raccoons can use the paws to grasp things easily, search for food, lift the lids (盖子) off trashcans and even open doors. It is said that they can easily pick money from your pocket! There are lots of nerves (神经) on a raccoon’s paws. It makes their paws very sensitive (敏感的). When underwater, raccoons can use the paws to feel things. Raccoons also have very special feet that can rotate (旋转) 180 degrees. So they can climb up and down trees head first.
