    Hygiene requirements, such as washing your hands before every meal, has become of utmost importance lately due to the unprecedented circumstances that the coronavirus pandemic has created. This raccoon lady, however, seems to be taking the recommendations too zealously.

    An amusing video has surfaced online in which a raccoon from Richmond, Virginia, was filmed "washing" a slice of pizza in a waterbowl before proceeding to munch on it. According to the description of the clip, this young female coon is a frequent visitor at the house and often comes to enjoy leftovers from the fridge.

    The critter's food-washing rite is nothing uncommon among raccoons - this is way these animals enhance the tactile experience so that they have a clear understanding of what they are about to eat.
