The name "raccoon" is derived from the Indian name Aroughcun. The familiar abbreviation "coon" is in general a colloquial use in the United States. The animal is common in wooded areas and possesses peculiar and interesting traits. Because of its abundance it can become a pest. Raccoons have become particularly comfortable in urban and suburban areas, feeding at night at man's garbage can restaurants. They range across most of the United States. They eat both plant and animal material of a wide variety and are active all year long in most parts of the country.
