Coati (Nasua nasua), small, carnivorous mammal related to the raccoon. Its long tail is held vertically above its back. It ranges from Arizona to South America. Coatis live in small bands made up of females and young, the males being solitary except in the breeding seasons. They roam through the forest, feeding on small animals and fruit and climbing trees.
