About the Raccoon

A raccoon is a cute and furry animal that lives in North America. They have a distinctive black mask on their face and a bushy tail with black and white stripes.

They are usually nocturnal, which means they are active at night and sleep during the day. They are good climbers and love to search for food, especially fruits and nuts.

They have strong front paws that help them open things like containers to find food. They are interesting creatures and often seen as pests because they can get into garbage cans and cause a mess.
