Raccoons are members of the Family Procyonidae which includes the cacomistle, kinkajou and coatis. Range / Habitat: Raccoons are found across southern Canada, throughout most of the United States, and into northern South America. Raccoons prefer to live in moist woodland areas. They can also be found in farmlands, suburban, and urban areas.

    Raccoons are mammals of the Americas. They can be found in cities as well as in the countryside. There are seven species, or types, of raccoon. The most common is the North American raccoon. The raccoon is one of the most easily recognized wild mammals in North America, with its grayish-brown fur, black mask-like markings around its face, and dark rings around its tail. The territory of the raccoon extends over most of the United States and into southern Canada.
