Raccoons do not live in water, they are not found on high mountains, they are not found in areas that are extremely cold and receive a lot of snow in winter, such as northerly taiga and tundra. They do live in deserts if there is a source of water nearby, such as a stream or spring.
Taiga biomes have cold winters and tend to be found in northern Canada. Animals found in taiga biomes are moose, elk, and bears; as well as other animals who are able to survive in areas with cold winters.
There are many producers found in the taiga, including moss (sphagnum, club); lichen, berries (crowberry, raspberry and blueberry bushes, red baneburry); various trees (birch, aspen, spruce, coniferious, alder, pine); and many more.
Taigas are important because such trees can be found there. -taiga filters millions of liters of water -it stores large amounts of carbon -produces oxygen -rebuilds soil and restore nutrients -bogs and marshes provide habitats for large numbers of species from fish to birds
