Exotic Animals
About This Project

Coatis live in the trees of South America but come to ground to eat. Their snout-like noses are used to poke through crevices to find prey.

Whilst most closely related to racoons, Coatis have bear-like paws, which means they are non-retractable.

When giving birth, the female Coati leaves the group and makes a nest in a tree trunk or other elevated hideaway. They typically have 3-7 young in a litter. She then returns with the youngsters when they are ready to join the main group.
