Nasua narica [White-nosed Coatimundi]
× Nasua nelsoni [Dwarf Coatimundi] The endangered dwarf coatimundi, an animal endemic to the island of Cozumel, is threatened by hybridization with escaped mainland white-nosed coatimundis brought to the island as pets. McFadden 2004.

Procyon cancrivorus [Crab-eating Raccoon]
× Procyon lotor [Northern Raccoon] These two raccoons are extremely similar. In fact, though they have long been treated as separate species, the only apparent difference between them is that the northern raccoon has longer hair. They come into potential breeding contact in Panama and adjacent Costa Rica. And since the two are so similar, almost certainly, any hybrids would be undetectable without genetic testing. But it seems nearly certain that they do hybridize in the zone of contact, since many other mammals, far more distinct than they, are known to hybridize in a natural setting.

× Ursus americana [Black Bear] An animal captured in Clay City, Indiana, fit the description of this cross. A brief notice, headlined "CAPTURES RACCOON-BEAR," about the event appeared on page 2, column 3, of the January 23, 1946, issue of the Sullivan Daily Times, a newspaper published in Sullivan, Indiana. It read as follows: "BRAZIL, Ind. (UP)—A Clay City farmer captured an animal on his farm believed to be a cross between a raccoon and a bear, with some of the characteristics of each."
