...based on animals being counted in London Zoo, is the coati.




The coati is of the same family as the raccoon, and has a prehensile nose that can bend in sixty degrees in any direction. Its tail is not prehensile but is quite mobile, and is usually held upright to help other coati see where that coati is. (I am not precisely sure of the plural of "coati"; I think that it is "coati".) They are, also, apparently sometimes known as "snookum bears".

I'd feel kind of dirty calling any animal a snookum bear

It's pretty disgusting isn't it? I don't know who was responsible for that one.
