NORTHERN RACOON - INVASIVE

Procyon locor

The Northern Racoons, rodents distinguished by the black rings of their tail as well as the bandit-like mask on their face, are an invasive species to the Bahamas, native throughout North America. They are most active at night and tend to forage for any food available, such as fruit, animal eggs, insects, and garbage. They’re typically solitary unless caring for their young, and can grow between 60-95 cm as mature adults.
