Seasonal Weight Changes in Raccoons (Carnivora: Procyonidae) of North Carolina

Record #:
Raccoons were studied in the North Carolina piedmont from 1975 to 1976 to determine if seasonal changes in body weight occur in a mid-latitude region. Weight changes in raccoons occurred later in North Carolina than in northern states and were less extreme. Differences in weight may reflect different foraging behaviors used in various climates and habitats.
