Raccoons are nocturnal mammals. They most often live in the forest but can also adapt to city life, where they find plenty to eat in residential or restaurant bins.

They know how to climb in height (by clinging to walls and gutters), dig holes to enter the attic by tearing materials (insulation and others), and damage walls with their claws.
