Good use of video. :slight_smile: Transcripts would not do this justice!

BUT MOM I DON’T WANNA CLIMB THE TREE! IT’S TOO HIGH!

props for motherly persistence, though. YOU WILL.

There’s a really great national geographic documentary (which is on netflix) where they put a radio collar on a mother raccoon and follow her around with her kits.

Reminds me of…

Was she giving a routine climbing lesson or trying to figure out how to get it off of a roof?
The bottle-fed orphan that I had as a kid climbed just fine on it’s own once it was old enough… I guess that I sort of taught it because it would follow me up the trees, but I sure don’t climb like a raccoon.
