Raccoons have a distinctive black mask and ringed tail. Raccoons tend to
vary in weight, from 6 to 20 lbs for a female, and 15 to 27 lbs for a
male. They are nocturnal animal meaning they become active shortly after
sunset until shortly before sunrise and spend their days sleeping. The
breeding season is February thru March and giving birth approximately
2 to 2.5 months later. There are 2-5 pups per litter on average. Raccoons
can tend to live in groups of 1-3 when it is not the mating season. They
find refuge under porches, stoops, decks, chimneys, and sometimes attics.
Attics can be destroyed by a raccoon and its family. Feces carry disease
and can be harmful.
