Coatis are animals that are found only on the American continent and usually live in moist or tropical rainforests. They live in elevated areas – mostly above 3000 meters – which could include pine and oak trees. Their fur coat helps them survive these conditions.
The name ‘Coati’ or Coatimundi originated from the Spanish word “coatí,” which goes back to Old Tupi. Their word – kua’ti – is a combination of two words: “cua” (meaning “belt”) and “tim” (meaning “nose”).
