How do raccoons behave in their natural habitat?

Raccoons are kings of the urban jungle but that is not where they originally came from. They started in dense forests that once filled North America. They have since adapted to life in the suburbs and cities, they used to have a slightly different lifestyle.

In the wild raccoons survive on nuts, berries, some vegetables, and injured birds and smaller animals. They are willing to eat just about anything and their exceptionally short digestive tract allows them to eat rotting meat with no negative side effects. 

Raccoons, like in urban landscapes, don’t usually make their own den and prefer to find them. In the wild this could be a hollowed-out tree, a den previously made by another animal or even a small cave or fallen log. Raccoons are very solitary creatures, rarely getting together except to mate. The male leaves after mating but the mother remains to raise the young. 

If you encounter a wild raccoon you should stay away from it. They carry a number of dangerous diseases and if it is a female protecting her babies you will be in for quite an assault. It’s very important that if you see a raccoon you simply leave the area. And if a raccoon is in your home, you should call a professional like Wildlife Shield.
