Raccoons are small nocturnal mammals with fur in varying shades of grey or brown with distinct black “masks” on their faces.
They’re extremely adaptable and use their dexterous paws and agility to outsmart humans and prey.
Since raccoons are omnivores, they will eat about anything they come across. When it comes to your garden and lawn their favorites include sweet corn, strawberries, peas, fruit trees, and grubs.
