Here at The Hollywood Gossip, we’re out to prove people wrong when it comes to raccoons.

Think these animals aren’t cute and cuddly?

Check out this photo of a raccoon riding an alligator. Or this memorable video of a raccoon breaking into a police station.

Granted, we still would not recommend picking up a raccoon and giving it a hug.

But we would strongly recommend you view the above video, which was filmed by photographer Jeffrey Reid and which features a mother helping her baby learn how to climb a tree.

It’s positively adorable.
