        Observing the Secret Lives of Raccoons

        This video segment from Nature: "Raccoon Nation" highlights a study which explored the movements of urban raccoons. Biologists Marc Dupuis-Desormeaux and Suzanne MacDonald conducted the study in Toronto, Canada to gain more insight into raccoon behavior. The segment shows how the scientists used radio collars to track the raccoons' GPS locations every 5 to 15 minutes. This study, which is the first to successfully track the exact movements of raccoons in a city, found that raccoons generally stay in an area the size of about three city blocks.

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
