Cancun Resort Monday: Coati

All week people had told me I would be seeing coatis, little cat-monkey things. Even though I searched them out I didn’t see any. As we were disembarking the tram after the whale shark excursion, I complained. It’s the last day and I still haven’t seen any coati!” I looked down the street, and there was a whole passel of them! They are called a “coatimundi” or “coati” or “tejon” in Spanish. They are related to racoons and have cute long tails. They roll around with each other and are so much fun! It was a great day, animal-wise.
