This little dude is a close relative of the raccoon and has adapted to a variety of climates, including deserts and rainforests. In the United States it is primarily found in the Southwest. The Coati’s most distinctive feature is its long, flexible snout, which it uses to dig around in soil and leaves for grubs and other food. Nothing cooler than a flexible snout, amirite? The coati also has a particularly large tail that makes up about half the length of its body—and which it uses to keep its balance as it adeptly climbs trees. Anyhoo, White Nosed Coati.
