Q:

What is a group of raccoons called?

A:

A group of raccoons is called a gaze. Raccoons are sociable animals within the family group. They will remain with the family group for a year before venturing off to look for a mate.

Raccoons are found almost everywhere in the United States and southern Canada. They make dens in hollow logs or trees in the wild, but in suburban and urban areas, raccoons may choose to live in attics or under homes. Raccoons tend to stay in their dens throughout the colder months of winter, only venturing out on warmer days.

Raccoons have a wide variety of foods that they eat, including fruits and nuts, frogs, fish, mussels and insects. In suburban and urban areas, raccoons will feast on cat food, chips and whatever they can find in trashcans.
