All one needs is a raccoon to put in the can.  And I suspect that, someone, somewhere, makes one.

Klingenhöfer Modellbau from Germany produces all sorts of animal figures in all scales, including Z (https://www.klingenhoefer.com/). No racoons, it seems (although I think they might produce them upon demand as they do have them already in 1:32 and 1:45), but plenty of other nice figures in 1:220.

I recently got one of their Z-scale bald eagles and a brown bear with cubs, all tiny, but very well done.

Another producer of very good Z-scale human and animal figures is Trafofuchs (http://www.trafofuchs.de/index_en.htm). There is an article on them in the current Trainini issue and I have been for a long time ordering most of my figures from them. They are all too happy to take orders for custom made figures.

Cheers,

Chris
