White-Nosed Coati

Raccoon's Cousin

From the Series America's Hidden Animal Treasures

One sunny morning in late summer, naturalist Doug Moore was driving in Madera Canyon in southeastern Arizona when he noticed a large animal on the road. He saw that the creature had a long snout, slender body, and long tail with rings of light and dark fur. At first he thought it looked like a monkey. After stopping his car for a better look, Doug saw that it wasn’t a monkey at all—it was a white-nosed coati! These small mammals are rarely seen in the United States because their population has been reduced by hunting and habitat loss. In White-Nosed Coati: Raccoon’s Cousin, kids go on a real-life adventure with wildlife biologists as they research these elusive creatures. Children will learn about the coatis’ natural habitat, diet, behavior, and physical characteristics. Large, full-color photos and a dramatic narrative format will keep readers turning the pages.White-Nosed Coati: Raccoon’s Cousinis part of Bearport’s America’s Hidden Animal Treasures series.
