White-nosed Coati


The White-nosed Coati (Nasua narica) inhabit wooded areas (dry and moist forests) of the Americas. They are found at any altitude from sea level to 3,000 m  and from as far north as southeastern Arizona and New Mexico, through Mexico and Central America, to far northwestern Colombia.  They are omnivores, preferring small vertebrates, fruits, carrion, insects, snakes, and eggs. They can climb trees easily, where the tail is used for balance, but they are most often on the ground foraging.
