Some interesting Biology about Raccoons in Texas:
The raccoon (Procyon lotor) is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. As a result of escapes and deliberate introductions in the mid-20th century, raccoons are now found across the European mainland, the Caucasus region and Japan. Their original habitats were mixed forests, but due to their ability to adapt they now have extended their range to mountainous areas, coastal marshes and even urban areas.
With a body length between 41 to 72 cm and a weight of 7.9–19.8 lbs., the raccoon is the largest procyonid. Their dense underfur serves to insulates against cold weather and accounts for almost 90% of the raccoon's grayish coat. Two of the Raccoons' most distinctive features are its extremely dexterous front paws and, of course, its facial mask.
Raccoons are also known for their intelligence. Studies have shown that they can remember the solution to tasks up to three years later. Raccoons are omnivorous and usually nocturnal and have diets consisting of about 40% invertebrates, 33% plant foods and 27% vertebrates. Captive raccoons sometimes douse their food before eating it which is most likely an activity imitating foraging at shores.
Though previously thought to be solitary, we now evidence that raccoons engage in gender-specific social behaviors. Related females will often share a common area and unrelated males live together in groups of up to four and maintain their positions against foreign males during the mating season. Home range sizes vary anywhere from 7.4 acres for females to 19.1 sq miles for males in prairies.
After gestation, about 65 days, 2 to 5 young are born in spring. They are subsequently raised by the mother until dispersion in late fall. Although captive raccoons have been known to live for over 20 years, their average life span in the wild is only 1.8 to 3.1 years. Hunting and traffic accidents are the most common causes of death in Texas.
