Merrillville Wildlife Tip:
About Raccoons: Appearance, Biology, Life Cycle, Habitat, Diet, Behavior

Raccoons belong to the Procyonide mammalian genus, and these small mammals usually live on the carcass. You may often find these creatures on tree branches; however, some species of this category also live on grounds. Most varieties of raccoons are found in the American continent, ranging from Amazonian swamps to Canada. By looking at their faces, you may find these animals innocent and cute creatures, but once they start visiting your property, they will show how destructive they can be. If you live in a raccoon prone area, it is good to collect few essential facts about these animals so that you can treat them accordingly.


One of the most common raccoon species out of a wide range is Texas raccoon that is common trouble for American householders. This raccoon can be identified from its brown fur and the unique black mask around eyes; it is the trademark. Also, raccoons have paw containing five fingers that appear same as shape human fingers and palm. At an average, raccoon weight can be as high as between 12 to 15 pounds. The Texas raccoon used to have a sharp and small nose, and the most distinguished feature of these animals is their long, thick tail with 10 black-brown colored circles.


Adult male raccoons prefer to live alone, and they prefer to mark their territories. However, they can tolerate a female raccoon within that bound area. Spring months are their mating season, and after few months the babies are born. Mother raccoon care for babies and the male again move out to enjoy his independent lifestyle.

Life Cycle:

After mating season, female raccoons generally give birth to four young babies, and they are born within two months gap after mating. The baby raccoons become able to stand on their feet almost after 4-6 weeks after their birth. Father raccoon does not stay with the family; however, mother raccoon takes responsibility to teach them how to live and hunt for some time, and then babies also start living independently.


Most of the raccoon breeds prefer to make dens in the forest areas where they can also get an easy supply of water. Experts reveal that raccoons can create caves, underground holes and tree trunks to live. Raccoons are nocturnal animals; in the day hours, they prefer to sleep and rest; however, nighttime is their hunting time, and they become active in their territory. You will be surprised to know that these animals are naturally trained to move up and down through trees and at the same time they are excellent swimmers. These intelligent and hyperactive animals can also attack human habitats while searching for some food and shelter.

Diet and Behavior:

Raccoons move out for hunting food in night hours. Note that they are omnivorous creatures, so they can eat anything that is easily available. These animals prefer to hunt for crab, fish, and frogs, etc. from ponds and streams. However, in your garden, they can also come to collect some nuts and berries.
