I’ve spotted these cute cratures a couple of times, briefly crossing the alley before disappearing in the thick jungle surrounding the Mexican resort.

I consider myself lucky to have spotted an entire family traveling from tree to tree, about 40ft from where I was standing. I found a small opening and carefully slipped between the trees, making sure I don’t scratch myself. I’ve landed in an opening large enough to perform a belly dance 🙂
Te coati bunch quickly became aware of my presence and made their way deep in the jungle, retrieving the youngsters one by one from different tree branches.
I’ve found them quite cute and intelligent. While searching for the coati latin name I’ve sadly ran across this recent Herald Tribune article stating that 45 coatis have recently been poisoned in Cancun’s mangroves 😦
