Meet Bindi the Coati

Our latest addition to the CARE family is a South American coati named Bindi. South American coatis are native to tropical and subtropical regions of South America, where they are typically very widespread. Coatis are small mammals, related to raccoons and are omnivorous. Bindi’s favorite foods are raw eggs, chicken, and marshmallows! When she’s happy, Bindi makes high pitched whistle sounds, and she makes them a lot when she sees her CAREgivers, especially when they have her favorite treats! At 8 years of age, Bindi has reached the typical life span of coatis in the wild. However, with all the special love and attention she receives here at CARE, we are hoping that Bindi will be around for many more years. Come and see Bindi on a weekend tour or CARE’s upcoming Fall Festival in November!
