Thank you very much Frank! I looked for the Nasuella kind but I didn´t think it looked quite like that one; therefore, I continued searching and I came up with the South American Coatí or ring tailed coatí (Nasua nasua) and I think it does look like this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Ameri...
Best regards.
