Mammals - Northern Raccoon
Class:Mammalia Order:Carnivora Family:Procyonidae Genus:Procyon


You think you are raccoon and opossum free. I mean, you look around the yard, in the trees and up and down the street - no racoons or opossums. Then one night, say after a dinner party when you are cleaning up, you go out into the back yard to, I don't know, take out the trash or throw out some coffee grinds, and see 2-4 sets of glowing eyes staring back at you. Yup, I told you that you have raccoons or opossums. And don't expect them to run away whimpering when you bumble upon them. That's not the way they do business.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
