Too cute .thanks for sharing....I also didnt know Raccoons were blind at birth but then again so are baby Koala's and Joeys, which are baby Kangaroos and believe me youd not want to mess with a Kangaroo or a Koala but the latter would be hard b/c they are always up trees but adult kangaroos are good to have a healthy respect too as well as Emus...their chicks are soooooooooooooo cute too.

Um by the way Koala's arent Bears and should never be called Koala Bears..thats a no no...why? Their make up is nothing like that of a bear. They are Marsupials.

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Are_koalas_marsupials

Answer:
Yes. A koala is a marsupial. It is a pouched mammal, and the young (joey) is born extremely undeveloped. It makes its way to the mother's pouch (which, incidentally, is backward-facing) where it latches onto a teat, remaining there for many months to continue its development. The joey stays in the mother's pouch for a few months. When it is old enough, it begins to venture out, clinging tightly to the mother's fur.

Like other marsupials, female koalas have two vaginas, or what are called paired lateral vaginae. These are for the purpose of transporting the sperm to the womb, but there is a midline pseudovaginal canal for actually giving birth.

All so precious, it's hard to believe they grow up to be so fierce!
I was particularly impressed with the buffalo--I didn't know they went to such lengths to protect their young!
Thank you for a most interesting article!
