Hey, everyone. Worked on another animal motion test. Any comments/suggestions would be great. Hope you enjoy, and thanks again for your time.

Racoons can climb down trees, but they need to turn their hind feet to "hug" it. He should be carefully shimmy-ing down instead of "climbing in reverse".

Also, consider switching the motion of the stepping foot (after he gets the apple core) to the camera side foot(red) leading instead of the back(blue) foot. With the back blue foot leading, it looks like he's floating. If you swap that, then you'll have to swap the hand he keeps the core in while stepping to keep the alternate stride.

If his blue front hand is planted while eating, it's hard to see. He looks off balance in that silhouette. Perhaps you could pull it out a bit more to show that he's leaning on 3 paws to eat instead of just his rear haunches.

Awesome job, though. It looks great and I had to really look close to find problems with it!
