The coati mundi (also spelled "mondi") are members of the raccoon family Coati Mundi (Procyonidae), and like the North American raccoon, it is an omnivore (meaning it eats both meat and vegetation). Common nicknames for these animals are "Brazilian weasel" and "coon cat". Our Coatimundi were rescued from an owner who wanted to de-claw them... herself.

 

Description

Coati Mundi have upper bodies that are dark brown, gray, or brightly rust colored. The undersides are mostly white. The head is fairly narrow with the nose being slightly turned upward, elongated, and is flexible, allowing coati mundi to search for food under leaf litter and overturn debris. The muzzle is brown with pale spots above, below, and behind the eyes.

 

Diet

Primarily omnivorous, coatimundi usually seek out fruits and invertebrates. Coatis eat palms, eggs, larval beetles, scorpions, centipedes, spiders, ants, termites, lizards, small mammals, rodents, and carrion when it is available. They will also infrequently take chickens.

 

Offspring

Females give birth to 3-7 youngsters after a gestation of 75 days. Young open their eyes at 10 days old, can stand at 20 days, can climb trees at 30 days and can eat solid foods at 4 months.
