Please note that the Raccoons are currently asleep for the winter. They will be visible again next Spring!
This quite urban animal is easy to recognize!
Salt and pepper fur
Pointy ears and nose
The cutest little thief-looking animal.
I am easily recognized by my black mask and my big ringed tail. At birth I look very different however. It is only when I am ten days old that my mask begins to take shape. It’s the mask that gives me that cute and mischievous appearance.
They are perfectly adapted to urban settings.
As you know, I can be quite a public nuisance… You don’t leave me much choice though, as you are living on my turf. A backyard shed suits me just fine for shelter and I love to wander streets and lanes looking for garbage to eat. I also enjoy raiding bird feeders that you install in your yards.
Agile even in your trash!
I have well developed and very sensitive nerves in my paws so I’m the manual type. I am very skillful with my ten fingers. I can turn door handles, open coolers and can even open soft drink bottles.
Come visit the raccoons!
