October 2020: White-Nosed Coati

White-Nosed Coati (Nasua narica)

Throughout the month of October 2020, FaunaFocus will feature the white-nosed coati!

The white-nosed coati is a diurnal omnivore native to North and South America that primarily eats insects. It uses its bent claws and long, flexible snout to forage the forest floor and treetops in groups of 4-30, called bands or troops. Although considered “Least Concern,” the species is endangered in New Mexico.



Create art inspired by the white-nosed coati and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
