Coyotes are relatively new to the Maryland area, first appearing in 1972. Since that time, population densities have expanded greatly. Highest densities are found in Western Maryland and the lowest occur on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Beavers live near the water. Beavers cut down small-medium trees to dam up streams and rivers to create ponds. One beaver can cut down over 200 trees in a year.
When threatened, striped skunks will try to flee or will stomp their front feet as a warning signal. However, if the skunk continues to feel threatened, the skunk will stand upright on its front feet and spray a very foul smelling liquid (called butyl mercaptan) out of scent glands in its backside.
Opossums are abundant throughout the state of Maryland. They prefer to habitat woods near water but can also be commonly found in urban and suburban environments.
Raccoons can be a nuisance to both wildlife and humans. They are well adapted to urban and suburban areas and often enter homes, basements, attics and other outdoor structures. They love to raid trash bins or any food left in the open.
Squirrels prefer to reside in areas with mature trees to build their nests and breed. They are very vocal and bark and chatter while playing and chasing one another. They sometimes scold intruders like animals or people from a safe distance. But in some urban and suburban areas, they can become quite tame and can be approached closely.
The squirrel’s most damaging and annoying habit is gnawing on outside entrances into attic areas. Once the gain entry, they often nest in insulation or other materials found in the attic. Sometimes they gain entry through fireplaces or vents. They will sometimes chew on wiring cause a fire hazard to the home.
Generally, squirrels do not carry diseases that easily transmit to humans although they can infrequently be infected with rabies.
There are very few cases of rabies reported in the fox population in Maryland but foxes can be a threat to livestock and pets. They adapt well to most environments.
Maryland has ten species of bats. Some live in Maryland all year long while others migrate to Maryland in the spring and fall. Some species live in groups called colonies while others prefer to live alone or in small families.
Bats are the only mammals that can fly using their hands, which are also their wings. Bats have sharp tiny teeth that are designed for eating insects, a mainstay of their diet. However, they are generally not known to be aggressive to humans.
The occasional lone bat may enter a house during warmer months in Maryland is usually a younger bat that simply made a mistake in their navigating. Their instinct leads them to investigate new areas throughout the house.
The majority of bats that humans encounter are healthy, but bats can get contract illness and carry diseases. Some of the diseases that infect bats may also be transmitted to people although it is rare. Rabies and histoplasmosis are the most critical public health issues to consider when dealing with bats.
Water snakes have a heavy body with a large rounded head. They have a pattern on their back of black or reddish blotches. They can be aggressive when threatened but are non venomous.
