Raccoons are native to North America, originally inhabiting deciduous and mixed forests, but due to their adaptability, have moved into mountainous areas, coastal marshes and
urban areas. The word raccoon was adopted into English from the native Powhatan term meaning 'animal that scratches with its hands'; their other distinctive features are their black fur facial mask and bushy, ringed tail. Nocturnal by nature, raccoons are opportunistic omnivores, seeking out bugs, nuts, berries, mice, bird eggs, and food scraps from garbage cans, preferably under the cover of night.
