The coatimundi or Nausua narica, sometimes simply called the coati, is a member of the raccoon family Procyonidae. The White-nosed coati is native to a few regions of the southwestern US. The brown-nosed coati is native to Central and South America. The mountain coati is found exclusively in South America.

They have a flexible, moveable snout, which they use to forage for fruit, invertebrates and other animal matter. The coatimundi coatis snout is long and somewhat pig-like, part of the reason for its nickname ‘the hog-nosed raccoon’. It is also extremely flexible, it can be rotated up to 60 degrees in any direction. Nausua narica use their noses to push objects and rub parts of their body. The facial markings include white markings around the eyes and on the ears and snout.

Coatimundi Coatis have strong limbs to climb and dig and have a reputation for intelligence, like their fellow procyonid, the raccoon. They prefer to sleep or rest in elevated places and niches, like the rain forest canopy, in crudely built sleeping nests. Catimundi Coatis or Nausua narica are active day and night.

Coatimundi coatis or Nausua narica are diurnal animals, and live both on the ground and in trees. They are omnivorous, but primarily eat fruit, invertebrates, other small animals and bird eggs. They search for fruit in trees high in the canopy, and use their snouts to poke through crevices to find animal prey on the ground. They also search for animal prey by turning over rocks on the ground or ripping open logs with their claws.

All female Coatimundi coatis or Nausua narica in a group come into heat simultaneously when fruit is in season and mate with several males. Gestation period is 74 to 77 days.
