What Is the Habitat of Raccoons?
Initially, raccoons lived in the tropics and they could be found foraging along riverbanks; they lived in trees, burrows, emerging at dusk to hunt. Now they can be found in barns, ever since the raccoons started migrating to northern countries and adapting to new territory. Raccoon populations do very well in urban areas due to a lack of predators and an abundance of available human food.
