Photo of the Day: White Nosed Coati

25 03 2007

Here’s your member of the Carnivora for today; a White Nosed Coati from the Philadelphia Zoo, taken in August of last year;


I’ve always been charmed by coatis and their relatives, raccoons (both belong to the Family Procyonidae). The problem with photographing these little guys, however, was that they were extremely active, so it proved difficult to get any shot that wasn’t blurry. I’ll give it another try this summer, but until then this is one of the better shots from that trip.
