Raccoon

Meet our Raccoons!

 

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. 

Tree Climbing Bandits: 

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