White-Nosed Coati as Totem by Ravenari White-Nosed Coati as Totem by Ravenari
White Nosed Coati (Pizote / Antoon)
Nasua narica

The white-nosed coati/coatimundi, also known as the pizote, is a member of the raccoon family found in wooded areas within the lower end of North America, and the upper end of South America. They have flexible long, sensitive, white-tipped noses, which, along with their sharp claws; assist in their omnivorous diet; they are particularly fond of fruit. It is diurnal in its habits. When walking, it holds its tail upright in a distinct position. The white-nosed coati is an excellent terrestrial hunter, but is also a competent swimmer and climber, and tend to sleep in trees. Males are solitary by nature, females travel in packs with offspring. They are adaptable to human presence, very intelligent, and have been easily domesticated.

As a totem animal

Looking after others, being generous with your time and space, foraging, finding wisdom in unexpected places, being highly adaptable, sniffing out the truth, accepting the imposing presence of others, integration and assimilation, physical play.
