The Coati

My mom would love this animal.

This is the coatimundi, or simply coati, an omnivorous mammal in the order Carnivora and the raccoon family (Procyonidae) that is distributed across central and south America.

The species in Costa Rica is the white-nosed coati, Nasua narica. I photographed it at Volcan Poas.
