Learn About Raccoons CLICK ON PHOTO TO LEARN MORE
Raccoons are native to North and South America, ranging as far south as northern Argentina and as far north as southern Canada. The northern limits of their range have been expanding in recent years due to increased agricultural activity in Canada. Raccoons have been introduced in Europe and Asia as well.
Within their range, raccoons inhabit the lower elevations, avoiding the particularly harsh winter conditions of the high mountains.
There are six species of raccoons within the entire range and this info page will focus on the Common Raccoon which inhabits the United States and Canada.
