Native to South America
I don't like to say that I like any of my animals more than the other, but the coatimundi definitely wins one of the the most fun and playful award! They are extremely affectionate, and attention seeking. They are very similar to dogs and domestic animals although they have their exotic quirks!
Relative of the raccoon the Coati is a special species full of fun. One of the best things about them is their engaging personality, even for wild coatis. Vacation destinations in Costa Rica and other South American areas have wild coatis that steal food from tourist pockets like monkeys. They are aggressively cute and will make any interaction with them memorable.
