White-nosed Coati (Nasua narica) - photo from Simone's Kitchen; Coatis (or Coatimundi) are members of the raccoon family that live in South America, Central America, and southwestern North America. All coatis have a slender head with an elongated, flexible, slightly upward-turned nose, small ears, dark feet, and a long, non-prehensile tail used for balance and signaling. Some have rings around their tails. They are about the size of a large house cat. - info from Wikipedia
