White-Nosed Coati

White-Nosed Coati

In February or March, the most dominant male white-nosed coati will breed with each member of the band in a tree and is driven away afterward due to his juvenile-killing behavior.

In February or March, the most dominant male in a female white-nosed coati band’s range will be allowed to enter it ranks, first through grooming and other submissive behaviors.

Once accepted into the group, the male will breed with each member of the band in a tree and is soon afterwards driven away from the group. This is because they are known to kill juveniles.
