    1. Thanks. I've seen a few of these near tourist attractions in Brazil where they aggressively stalk tourists for food, which is of course due to tourists feeding them. I also saw them in the real wild, there too they are aggressive, but mostly amongst each other. Posted 9 years ago

The South American Coati, or Ring-tailed Coati , is a species of coati from South America. In Brazilian Portuguese it is known as quati. It is native to Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam, Uruguay and Venezuela. It is the southern replacement of its very similar cousin, the White-nosed Coati. Weight in this species is 3.4–6 kg and total length is about 1 m , half of that being its tail.
