Breeding takes place in January or February with a 2 month gestation period the young are born in march. With a usual litter between 3-5, cubs weighing about 3 ounces at birth covered in grayish yellow fur. The pups are able to open their eyes in about 3 weeks after birth and can accompany mom on short trips in 4 weeks. Raccoons exhibit some social hierarchy with the most dominant being the older males or order females with pups.

These worms are present in raccoon droppings and the eggs of these worms are so small and light in weight. That they can become airborne and inhaled by humans.
