How Fast Can A Raccoon Run?

a raccoon

The raccoon, whose method of locomotion is usually considered to be plantigrade, can stand on its hind legs to examine objects with its front paws.

As raccoons have short legs compared to their compact torso, they are usually not able either to run quickly or jump great distances.

Their top speed over short distances is 16 to 24 km/h (10 to 15 mph).
