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