South American Coati

We just learned about the Northern Olingo.

Another animal in the same family is the South American Coati, also called the ring-tailed coati or the nasua nasua.

This animal is about 10 pounds, and has about 40 inches long.
It can be in a few different colors like black or brown, with rings on its tail and some white marks on its face.

These coati live in South America, mostly in the forests.
