What Do Raccoons Eat?

The raccoon is usually nocturnal and omnivorous, eating invertebrates, plants, and vertebrates. Raccoons usually eat insects, worms although it prefers fruits and nuts, such as acorns and walnuts. Raccoons eat active or large prey such as birds and mammals only occasionally, since they prefer prey that is easier to catch, like fish and amphibians. The contents of bird nests are frequently consumed.
