About Raccoons: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior - The raccoon is an animal that is native to North America. It usually weighs between 8 to 20 pounds and gets to be a little over two feet in length. The raccoon has the distinctive circular stripped tail that makes it one of the most distinctive animals that a person will find. It is the fur and this tail that has caused the raccoon to become one of the most hunted animals in North America. European settlers coming to America hunted these animals for their furs in large numbers causing a rapid decrease in number.
Raccoons are considered to be highly intelligent animals, especially considering their relatively small sized brains. The term "sly as a coon" came from the fact that these mammals learn at an extraordinary rate. Some have found that raccoons only need to see a person use a locking mechanism a few times before they figure out how to turn the mechanism to gain access into a building. Raccoons have demonstrated their advanced intelligence in many studies, including a 1992 study that found that the rodent can determine which box has two grapes and which has four solely based on the sounds it hears in the box.
Many thought that raccoons were solitary figures, but recent research has found that these animals will interact with one another, and even share feeding grounds and resting areas. They will sometimes live in a loose social group of a few males that protect one another and help to find females for all the male members.
The raccoon is a nocturnal animal, so most of the food that they eat comes from things that they can find at night. They are true omnivores, meaning that they will eat virtually anything. Most of their diet comes from bugs, insects and small animals. They will eat the eggs of reptiles, amphibians, and birds, and have no problem with making a snack out of the contents of your garbage can.
Some raccoons hibernate during the winter, or have some form of hibernation where there is a reduced amount of activity and increased amount of sleep. This usually occurs in species that live in cold weather areas where food will become much scarcer during snowy and cold months.
Raccoons are known for getting food from rivers, ponds and streams, using a very patient and well thought out plan. This is why they are often referred to as dousers. Often food that they gather on land they will put in the water for safe keeping.
