Note: Species of mammal native from northern Canada through the United States southward into South America. It has been introduced into Europe and Asia. It recognizable by a conspicuous black mask coloration across the eyes and a tail ringed with 5 to 10 black bands. Raccoons are intelligent and inquisitive; they are typically nocturnal and often arboreal. The hairless front feet are highly dexterous and resemble slender human hands, the hind feet are thicker and longer. Although classified as a carnivore, the raccoon is omnivorous, feeding on crayfish other arthropods, rodents, frogs, fruit, and other plant matter including crops. It may immerse food in water to soften the food and the pads of its hands, giving rise to the belief that it washes its food. It has been hunted for its fur and occasionally for food.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Zoogdiersoort die inheems is in het noorden van Canada, in de gehele Verenigde Staten en zuidwaarts tot in Zuid-Amerika. Het dier is ook in Europa en Azië geïntroduceerd. Het is herkenbaar aan het opvallende zwarte maskerachtige kleurpatroon rond de ogen en aan de vijf à 10 zwarte ringen op de staart. Wasberen zijn intelligente en nieuwsgierige dieren. Ze zijn meestal 's nachts actief en leven vaak in bomen. Met hun haarloze voorpoten, die aan slanke mensenhanden doen denken, zijn ze zeer behendig. De achterpoten zijn dikker en langer. De wasbeer wordt weliswaar als vleeseter geclassificeerd, maar is in feite omnivoor: hij eet rivierkreeft, andere geleedpotigen, knaagdieren, kikkers, vruchten en ander plantenmateriaal, met inbegrip van gewassen. De wasbeer dompelt zijn voedsel soms in het water om het voedsel en zijn handkussens zachter te maken, waardoor het geloof is ontstaan dat het dier zijn voedsel wast. Het dier wordt bejaagd vanwege de pels en soms ook als voedsel.
