Raccoons (procyon lotor) are small mammals originally native to the southern Unived States, Mexico and Central American, weighing from four to thirty pounds, with adults averaging about twenty pounds. Like many mammals they tend to be smaller toward the equator and larger the farther away from it. Their range now extends as far north as Canada in North America, down to Panama in Central America. They have been deliberately introduced or released as pets now in Europe, Asia, and Japan, where they have established populations.
The marsh rabbit (sylvilagus palustris) can be found in the eastern and southern United States close to water, both Fresh and brackish. Look for them in marshes, wet prairies and flooded farm fields.
The Florida panther (puma concolor) is a subspecies found throughout Florida and occassionally into south Georgia although all the females are located in south Florida below the Caloosahatchee River. There are only an estimated 100 - 180 adult animals in the wild making them one of the rarest animals in the world.
