Raccoons are charming mammals but alarming in actions. Raccoons look attractive because they have a grayish fur and thick black cover around eyes. They have a stripped long-tail partly black and partly grayish. The average length of a raccoon is said to reach 2.5 feet (0.76 m) and weigh almost 15 pounds (ca. 7 kg). There is a great resemblance between a raccoon and a human hand, as both have five fingers. Raccoons may cause serious problems. They are equipped with sharp teeth and strong claws.
