Procyon is a genus of nocturnal mammals in the order Carnivora. They are commonly known as raccoons and are comprised of multiple species found around the world. They are extremely adaptable and owe their success to the introduction of invasive colonies across Eurasia. Raccoons originate from the two American continents; North and South America.

North American Raccoon (Procyon lotor)Edit

The ancestor of all Eurasian species and subspecies of Procyon. These raccoons are widespread across almost all of North America and they have been around for millions of years.

Crab-Eating Raccoon (Procyon cancrivorus)Edit

Siberian Raccoon (Procyon altaica)Edit

The Siberian raccoon is considered one of the largest raccoon species. They are distinguished by their large amounts of black fur covering the upper torso and shorter legs. P. altaica is the descendant of raccoons that were introduced during the 20th century Holocene. About 1,240 North American raccoons were released in nine regions of the former Soviet Union between 1936 and 1958 for the purpose of establishing a population to be hunted for their fur.

Japanese Raccoon (Procyon japonica)Edit

White-Tailed Raccoon (Procyon orientalis)Edit

Also known as the European Raccoon
