Why do we see more raccoons in the summer than in the winter?

    Raccoons sleep more during the winter than they do in the summer. They don’t quite hibernate, because if the weather isn’t too bad, raccoons will wake up and go find food. It may seem like they’re fattening up for winter when they put on fat before winter arrives, but they’re really just trying to keep warm and stay out of the cold. Raccoons don’t make their own dens, so they rely on natural shelters or dens that other animals made. Since the natural shelters or dens of other animals aren’t always adequate, the raccoon will store up for the winter so they can make up for lost warmth in the den.
