Domesticated raccoon enjoys drinking from a glass2021|00:39
This sophisticated raccoon loves nothing more than drinking from a glass and turns his nose up if offered a beverage in anything else. Three-year-old Mark the raccoon refuses to drink liquids unless they are served to him exclusively from glasses and jugs. Owner Sveltana Schwabenlandt, 34, always films the fussy rodent when he takes a drink as he pulls some ridiculous and comical faces. Sveltana, from Orsk, Russia, said: "Mark is an unusual raccoon! He looks more like a child! I believe that Mark is trying to copy us! "He has never seen another raccoon, for him I am his mother, and therefore I think he repeats after me! "Everyone in our family is already used to the fact that Mark drinks from a glass, and knows how to hold glasses and other objects in his hands! "At first it was funny for us, but then we got used to it! "I want people to understand that raccoons are like little children! Mark is a very smart raccoon. You can teach a raccoon anything, even drink and eat like a person!"
