My goodness you have seen a wonderful variety of animals ... some like this that I have never heard of before.

Love this picture, it reminds me of warthogs running around with tails straight up. Diane

I've seen single Coatis on 2 occasions in Arizona. To see a whole herd (coven?) of them is terrific.

Well, JM, you've managed to show an animal I've never even heard of before. And great shots, they are. The rich green color of the forest is very appealing.

So that's what a coati looks like. It's a word used often in crossword puzzles, but I don't think I've ever seen one...maybe in a zoo but I don't remember.

Hell, at my age I'm lucky to remember anything!

How interesting that they walk around with their tails up!

What a wonderful sight! The clean-looking white earth/sand and those pointy noses are too much!
