A raccoon is a nocturnal mammal in the genus Procyon of the Procyonidae family. Raccoons are unusual for their thumbs, which enable them to open many closed containers (such as garbage cans) and doors. They are intelligent omnivores with a reputation for being clever and mischievous. Raccoon fursonas are sometimes chosen for their mischievousness and playfulness. Often attracted to shiny objects, a raccoon fur is easily distracted.


One of the most popular raccoons is Meeko from Disney's Pocahontas. The comic strip Over the Hedge inspired a film version focusing on R.J. Raccoon and other woodland creatures dealing with pesky humans. Sly Cooper from the Sly Cooper video game series is a raccoon.
