South American Coati (Nasua nasua)

Set of scaled side and front drawings of the South American Coati

The South American Coati (Nasua nasua) is a coati species that lives in tropical and subtropical climates in South America. They are distinguished by the lack of their large white snout that their northern relative, the White-Nosed Coati, has. The South American Coati’s coat is variable in color and they have rings on their tail that are only somewhat visible. They are omnivores, and their diet is predominantly fruits, invertebrates, other small mammals, and bird eggs. Female South American Coatis live in large groups of 15 to 30 animals, and males are solitary.

The South American Coati has a body length in the range of 16.1”-26.4” (41-67 cm) and total weight of 6.6-15.4 lb (3-7 kg). The South American Coati has a body height between 8.7”-14.2” (22-36 cm), body width of 5.5”-9.4” (14-24 cm), and tail length of 12.6”-27.2” (32-69 cm). The typical lifespan of the South American Coati is between 7-24 years.
