Mexican animals

Agouti
Anatomy: Agoutis have coarse brown to almost-black fur; each individual hair has many bands of color. Agoutis have a very short tail and small, rounded ears. They range from 16 to 24 inches (41-61 cm) long; the tiny tail is only 1 inch (2.5 cm) long.

Diet: Agoutis are herbivores (plant-eaters); they eat fruit, nuts, seeds, leaves, and roots. These rodents are seed dispersers (they scatter seeds around the forest).

Reproduction: Females give birth to one or two well-developed young; newborns can see at birth. About an hour after birth, the baby agouti can eat leaves and will freeze when it senses danger.

Predators: Hunters of the agouti include the jaguarundi, jaguar, ocelot, harpy eagle, large snakes, and people (who eat agouti).
Coatimundi
Anatomy: Coatimundi have a long, pointed muzzle and a long, bushy, ringed tail. They range in size from 13-27 inches (33-69 cm) long plus a tail just as long as the body; they weigh from 7 to 15 pounds (3-7 kg). Males are larger than females. The coatimundi has brownish fur.

Diet: Coatimundi are omnivores (they eat both meat and plants). They eat small animals (like lizards, insects, rodents, snails, and birds), fruit and nuts. They often eat while hanging upside down from a tree branch. Coati find food using their keen sense of smell.

Classification: Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Chordata, Class Mammalia (mammals), Order Carnivora, Family Procyonidae, Genus Nasua, Species: narica, nasua, nelsoni, olivacea and wedeli
