Coatis roaming at the resort in search of food

Originally uploaded by LuceroDulce (104/365)

Coatis or as they call them in Mexico tejóns (or also named hog-nosed coons) are very common to find in Central and South Americas. They are basically pretty much racoons and act like them too. They were running around the resort where we were staying (Iberostar) with no fear of approaching people and taking bites out of the food on a plate! I liked the expression of one of the stuff members there, he called them "rats on the steroids", they really seemed to be that.

Trivia Question: Can you count how many coatis are on the picture?
