Hi Alexander, congrats on your funny, 100th spotting! Hope to see you back on PN soon :)
Very quick shot,
Coatis are actually huge pests around Iguazu Falls. They have no fear of humans and will steal food and raid trash bins. This one must have found something really tasty in there!
I like "snookum bear" best -- from Wikipedia:Coatis, genera Nasua and Nasuella, also known as the Brazilian aardvark, Mexican tejón, hog-nosed coon, pizotes, crackoons and snookum bears, are members of the raccoon family (Procyonidae). They are diurnal mammals native to South America, Central America, and south-western North America.
OMG!! This is soo funny. What a cute picture. I love his little feet.
