Good Grief. And how did she know that? After all that daggum googling I did, IT NEVER OCCURRED TO ME that it would be spelled like THAT!!!

Well I'm just chock a block full of info on our new friend the Coati. Look at this:

"The Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts of southwestern Arizona, southwestern New Mexico and the Big Bend to Brownsville areas of Texas."

This is for the white nosed Coati. I think we need to roadtrip it to Brownsville. Oh and further research I did said they ate eggs... perhaps Macaw eggs?

I just said out loud what your son said....
At first I thought Coyote, but then I read that you said it looked like a lemur and it clicked. If your kids were older, you might have known what he was because of Zooboomafoo (or however you spell it) on PBS. That show features a Coati puppet.
