Raccoon takes nap inside hollow palm tree trunk

- A crafty raccoon found a place to nap in a spot he thought would be away from the human eye. 

Outdoorsman Michael McCarthy spotted the raccoon climbing into what was left of a dead palm tree and thought the furry creature might have gotten stuck. So he put his GoPro on an extended pole and used it to take a look. 

It turns out the raccoon was just looking for a private spot to take a snooze. 

McCarthy spotted the raccoon along the Intracoastal waterway in Seminole. It struck some funny poses as it climbed up and into the hollow trunk of the palm tree.

Once he saw the raccoon's intention, McCarthy left him be.
