Coati

Nasua narica

Nose-bears are diurnal in contrast to other small-bears and extremely adaptable and sociable. They spend most of the day looking for food and maintain their fur. On the search for food, they browse the ground with its long and very movable nose. They hold their tails high up, whereby the ring drawing works as a signal far away visible. When climbing and jumping, the long tail serves for balancing. At nightfall they climb trees and spend the night involuted on a branch.
In captivity, the bears can become quite tame.
