Transcript of Raccoon Dog
The diagram shown below will show where this organism normally would make its habitat.
Where do babies come from?
This is the reproduction cycle of the raccoon dog. It is not very complicated, it is actually fairly quick.
This slide is focused on the raccoon dog's predators.
Where I am From
Nyctereutes procyonoides koreensis
Nyctereutes procyonoides orestes
Nyctereutes procyonoides procyonoides
Nyctereutes procyonoides ussuriensis
Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus
This is the Scientific name of the raccoon dog. It is there first known species before it began to wander and evolve slightly.
These areas listed are also the first known origins of this organism
The blue portion of this map shows where the species had originated. The red area is where the species had been domesticated.
Depending on the season and food source will determine its habitat. This particular organism happens to be a roaming species depending on the season.
In the summer the raccoon dog favors damp areas. These includes rivers, and lake areas near the shore.
The raccoon dog will generally be found in Moist areas with an abundance of fruits and berries specifically crow berries.
Winter is there hibernation time period. They are the only canine to hibernate. There wont be found near water or in a moist area though. They will normally be in abandoned fox and badger holes. once spring comes around they start to wake up and find a new place.
As the raccoon dog starts to find a home he or she may or may not run onto trouble. Some of the homes occupied were occupied by other animals. Badgers and foxes happen have the most suitable homes for the raccoon dog. unfortunately sometimes its still occupied.
Birds of Prey
Eagles, and hawks are the main birds of prey to the raccoon dog.
The fox builds homes for the raccoon dog by leaving it abandoned. However when that hole is still occupied it does not end well.
Like the fox the badger does the same for the raccoon dog. Another interesting fact is that they actually share the same home sometimes. When the badger gets tired of the company however it also goes badly.
Wolves share no symbiotic relationship with the raccoon dog. In fact it just sees the raccoon dog as lunch.
The gestation period of a pregnant female is around 2 months maybe a little more depending on the litter size. The largest litter recorded to date is 19. The typical litter size can range from 4-12 according to different sources combined.
Once the Babies are born they are born with there eyes closed. A week or so later there eyes open. After they open there eyes they are ready to be out of then den around three to four weeks. following there first steps out of the den they are eventually weaned from mom around five to six weeks.
The beginning of the reproduction cycle begins at the end of winter and the beginning of spring. The length of winter really plays a role as to when it begins. Generally it will begin in March and only happens once a year. Around this time is when the female goes into heat and the male's testosterone levels are high.
Females are sexually mature around 9-11 months, and start birthing pups at around 1 year old. They reproduce every year which is why this organism is not really threatened. The females that birth pups in the first year enter estrous a month earlier than older females do.
I was not able to find much on courting rituals by males to females. However I did find out that the males are monogamous from year to year. Copulation happens like any other canine in a back to back type mating. Copulation will last from anywheer from 6-10 minutes.
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING
Generally the raccoon dog eats the following:
- Berries and fruits for the winter season
-crustaceans and other small fish in summer
-Other favorites include small rodents
The foraging behavior of this organism really depends on the season. Also the raccoon dog will generally only make a home where there is a good amount of resources.
This is when the main gather of food for hibernation occurs.
