This coatamundi was being kept as a pet, but they are wild in the area, though rarely seen. They are very cheeky and energetic

Yeah, it was on this horrible Bizarre tour that was billed to us "tour the Aztec villages" but was really like the Mexico shack and poverty tour. Mad uncomfortable as German tourists were giving lollipops to kids in trash heaps and monkeys and coatamundis were ties up for tourists to look at.
