Where can raccoons be found?

Raccoon are mammals found in many cool to temperate areas in North America. Originally forest dwellers, they have also become scavengers in cities and suburbs.

Human introductions have led to raccoons become problem pests in Germany, and to a lesser extent in Japan.

Raccoons are found in a wide variety of habitats throughout North and South America, from swamps to forests and even deserts and in major cities. Click on this link for a range map of the raccoon.
