The one horribly disgusting creepy thing raccoons do which has prevented me from ever looking at them in a positive light (whited out because it's gross and y'all can't un-read it - I'm warning you . . .)
When I got a tour of the Body Farm in Knoxville, a grad student was doing a research project on what wild animals do to human remains left outdoors. Raccoons will actually go and make several shallow bites in the body, so they can come back the next day and lick out the resulting maggots. Otherwise the maggots only congregate around soft tissue they can reach (mucus membranes, eyes, etc.) and they're harder to get to.
Raccoons creep me out now - they're EVIL.
