White-nosed Coati

The name coati is applied to any of three species of small neotropical mammals in the genus Nasua, family Procyonidae, ranging from southern Arizona to north of Argentina. They are largely insectivorous, but also eat fruit. Distinctive features of all species of coati include a long, ringed tail, which is often held erect. Unlike most members of the raccoon family, coatis are primarily diurnal. (Wikipedia, 2006) See Lodge information and prices.
