About the Raccoon
Scientific Name: Procyon lotor
The raccoon, sometimes spelled racoon, also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon, northern raccoon, or coon, is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. The raccoon is the largest of the procyonid family.
This raccoon's leucistic coloring is caused by a genetic difference in the amount of pigment in her hair, skin and nails. This genetic difference makes her blonde, but not albino.
