The Brown-nosed Coati is a member of the Raccoon family and has a long snout which is white near the end and around the eyes. The coati has small ears, dark feet, brown coat and a long, thin tail.
Behaviour: Coatis are mainly active during the day and sleep at night. They use many vocal signals to communicate with one another, and also spend time grooming themselves and each other.
Population: The Brown-nosed Coati is currently not endangered.
Coatis are omnivores and their diet consists mainly of invertebrates and fruit. They also eat small vertebrate prey, such as lizards, rodents, small birds, and birds’ eggs.
They inhabit wooded areas of the Americas.
Each of their four feet can rotate 180 degrees to allow them to descend down trees headfirst. They have strong claws to assist with climbing.
In the wild, coatis live for about 7 to 8 years, while in captivity they can live for up to 15 years.
