Raccoons are an animal widely spread throughout Texas. You can easily find them near water and in woodlands. These animals are around 40 to 70 cm long and weight from 3.5 to 9 kg. Raccoons are very curious and intelligent creatures. They are talented climbers and swimmers and have excellent night vision. One of the most important senses for raccoons is the sense of touch because of their "hypersensitive" front paws. Raccoons make their dens in hollow logs or trees. They usually sleep during the day and are active at night. They mostly feed on insects, worms, as well as fruits and nuts—such as acorns and walnuts. Their lifespan is more than 20 years. ​​
