Nazurso

Nazurso comes from Spain and was held there in a small zoo as an annex to a restaurant that was instructed by the government to close down and give up the animals. He was temporarily admitted to Stichting AAP and then transferred to De Zonnegloed where Nazurso can live together with other coati.

Uden

Uden, a coati whose age is unknown, was brought to AAP in Almere on the 10th of May. Bystanders found the lost coati on the street and alerted the animal ambulance. Uden turned out to be extremely difficult to catch, but with the help of the fire brigade and a veterinarian, he could be stunned and transported to the Zonnegloed.


Where does he feel most at home?

You can find the South American coati in the tropical regions of South America. They live in forests on the mountain slopes of the Andes at heights up to 2500 metres.

What's his favourite food?

They love fruit and invertebrates, but will eat eggs, small reptiles and small mammals as well.

Fun fact

The nose of the South American coati is very flexible. This allows it to search for food between the leaves on the ground.
