The Sonoran Desert is home to an array of plants and animals that have adapted to this unique environment. From big cats, giant hares, and killer insects to extraordinary reptiles, birds that can run at high speeds and the world’s largest cactus, this is North America’s biologically diverse desert.
Raccoons that live in cities and towns are much more successful than their country cousins. In fact, they’re thriving with us. Their knack for mischief has earned them a reputation, but there’s way more to raccoons than just trashcan thievery. They are smart, adaptable and equipped with an array of incredible senses that allow them to maximize every opportunity humans provide. From using our sewer systems as underground highways, to infiltrating our chimneys and attics for den sites, they have become the ultimate urban operators. Take a look into a year in the life of the furry masked bandits that not only live in your neighborhood, but know it better than you do.
