Raccoons do not hibernate. They go through a period of decreased activity in the winter, which is referred to as torpor, but it is not technically hibernation. Raccoons do not exhibit the marked physiological changes 鈥?reduced temperature, reduced rate of respiration and heart beat, insensibility to pain 鈥?that characterize true hibernation.Do raccoon hibernate?
