The mask and markings are a little different and their tails are slightly longer as well. They kind of look like a cross between our northern raccoon and the coati...also a member of the procyonidae family.
Latin Name - Procyon cancrivorus
Conservation Status - Least Concern
Location - Central & South America
Color - Brown/Grey
Length - 45 - 90 cms (18 - 35 inches)
Tail - 20 - 56 cms (8 - 22 inches)
Weight - 2 - 12 Kgs (4.5 - 26 lbs)
Life Expectancy - Up to 14 Yrs
I had the camera out there for 3 nights....but thanks to the curiosity of this coon....
....and the decision to play with his new toy, the camera was repositioned away from the activity of the den, thus not many photos.
We can thank the little bugger for one thing at least, the new angle gave us a great shot of a red fox in the area that night! I think he looks a little gimpy though, but unfortunately there weren't any more clips of him to be able to tell for sure.

But there are some other very unique coonies out there! Like the oh soooo adorable Miss Vicki here. OMG how cute is that baby picture! She's a true albino with white fur and pink eyes.
Here she is all grown up..she totally owns her hooman mom! LOL What a beauty! (although I have to say....that look says mischief to me! LOL)

We finally reach the perfect spot! Opened the box and waited for him to take off!
Then we got the heck outta there before frostbite set in!!
