Type: Common Raccoon
Common Raccoons are most identifiable by the dark bands striping their sweeping tails and the mask that darkens their features. They have a pointy muzzle with a dark nose, along with pearly white whiskers. Raccoons usually weigh in from 7 to 20 pounds depending on their age and gender.
Raccoons are probably most widely known for their scavenging habits which occur during the nighttime. Their night vision allows for them to continue to hunt for food and nutrition during the night. Raccoons can eat nearly anything; most Raccoons that live in more urban areas get their nutrition from human garbage. However, Raccoons can also eat insects, carrion, fish, nuts, rodents, and more.
In the daytime, Raccoons sleep in the warmth of a den or in the safety of a tree. They are nocturnal and rest when it's light outside. Raccoons are solitary creatures and only group with fellow Raccoons when it's nearing breeding season.
