Racoon

                                           

In general, raccoons are not a danger to humans. However, they are very powerful and, when provoked, can attack or defend itself vigorously. Raccoons often cause damage by digging through garbage, and also structural damage to access an attic or wall cavity, where they can leave their urine and feces. They can also cause damage to land digging for worms and thus ruin a garden.


Females have one litter per year, with an average of 2 to 5 young. In captivity, raccoons can live up to 12 years in the wild but his life fell to under 6 years due to lack of food and water, diseases, predators and other environmental factors.
