A Look At Predators in the Wild
Many small animals are probably not a fan of their position on the animal food chain. Having to run, hide, or do anything to avoid getting eaten must be an extreme sport.
For the omnivorous mammals, Raccoons, the story is the same. On some days, they are predators; on other days, they are prey.
Raccoons will eat domestic birds like chickens and turkeys, but they do not stand a chance against larger birds. Big birds such as the great horned owl, buteos hawk, golden eagle, and bald eagle actually eat raccoons.
Now, raccoons will not hesitate to snack on small reptiles like lizards and iguanas when they are chanced. But the big ones like crocodiles, anacondas, boa constrictor, alligators, and yacares will waste no time swallowing a raccoon.
With domestic cats, raccoons might have a field day. Besides the diseases they can transmit to domestic cats, raccoons can also eat cats, especially the small ones. The big domestic cats might not get eaten, but they can get an infection if scratched by a raccoon.
