The South American coati, or ring-tailed coati (Nasua nasua), is a species of coati from tropical and subtropical South America. In Brazilian Portuguese it is known as quati. Weight in this species is 2–7.2 kg and total length is 85–113 cm, half of that being its tail. Its color is highly variable and the rings on the tail may be quite weak, but it lacks the largely white muzzle ("nose") of its northern cousin, the white-nosed coati.

Scientific Name: Nasua nasua (Linnaeus, 1766)
Common Names:
English – South American Coati, Ring-tailed Coati
Spanish – Coatí, Achuni, Tejón
