Raccoons are commonly found all throughout North America, as well as some parts of Europe, and tend to inhabit deciduous forests. However, they are very skilled at adapting, and can live in mountains, marshes, and most infamously, urban areas.

  • History:

    Because of their close proximity to urban areas and their overall population size, raccoons interact with humans fairly often. Originally, Native Americans included raccoons in their folk tales in which they were portrayed as tricksters in the same vein as foxes. Most modern cultures see raccoons as pests, and they’re infamous for toppling over and eating out of garbage cans. Globally, raccoons are not threatened and are considered a species of least concern.

    Present Status The raccoon is native to North America and can be found across most of the continent, except for certain parts of the Rockies and in the arid Southwest. Raccoons are common in Canada, Mexico, and the northernmost parts of South America. During the 1900s, raccoons were exported from North America to other parts of the world. Currently, they can be found in places such as Germany, Russia, and Japan.
