Fun Facts About Raccoons

  • Raccoons are omnivores and will eat just about anything.
  • A male raccoon is called a boar, a female a sow and their young are called kits.
  • Raccoons have 5 toes on their front paws that function like dexterous fingers
  • A raccoon’s hind legs are longer than their front legs, making raccoons appear to be hunched.
  • Raccoons keep themselves clean. They have been witnessed washing their food when a water source is available and digging their own latrines (sometimes in our backyards… ew!).
