The coatimundi (pronounced ko-WAH-ti-MUN-dee) is also called the coati (pronounced ko-WAH-ti) or the hog-nosed coon. It is a small mammal that lives in small groups called bands. The coatimundi is related to the raccoon. Coatimundi are great tree climbers who live in tropical rainforests, grasslands, and brushy areas of South America and southern North America. Coatimundi have a life span of about 14 years in captivity.

Anatomy: Coatimundi have a long, pointed muzzle and a long, bushy, ringed tail. They range in size from 13-27 inches (33-69 cm) long plus a tail just as long as the body; they weigh from 7 to 15 pounds (3-7 kg). Males are larger than females. The coatimundi has brownish fur.

Diet: Coatimundi are omnivores (they eat both meat and plants). They eat small animals (like lizards, insects, rodents, snails, and birds), fruit and nuts. They often eat while hanging upside down from a tree branch. Coati find food using their keen sense of smell.

Classification: Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Chordata, Class Mammalia (mammals), Order Carnivora, Family Procyonidae, Genus Nasua, Species: narica, nasua, nelsoni, olivacea and wedeli
