The raccoon (or Trash Panda as we like to refer to them) is a stocky mammal up to three feet in length and weighing between 8-20 pounds. Distinctive markings include a black mask over the eyes and heavily furred tail with black rings. Its fur is grizzled in appearance and coloration can vary from gray to black, although individuals with a somewhat yellow, “tawny” color are common in some areas. Raccoons have pointy, triangular ears and hand-like front paws. Breeding peaks in February and March, but can occur at any time from December to June. Litters of 1-7 “kits” are born after about 63 days. Young are weaned after 10-12 weeks, but can remain with the female as a family unit for up to one year.
