Hi There, cool find! You do NOT have a raccoon skull here however. You actually have a opossum! Please consider adding this great find to the "Identifying Animals Through Osteology" Mission http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8475...

Here are a few additional links from the mission for verification purposes!
