Meet The Animal

These omnivorous mammals can be found all over North America. They can live around two to three years in the wild and around fifteen to twenty years in captivity. Raccoons are primarily nocturnal animals but can sometimes be seen during the day.

Did You Know?

Raccoons have rotating joints in their ankles! They can rotate 180 degrees both ways, so they can climb down trees easier!
