Coatis, a member of the raccoon family, are mammals native to South America, Central America, and south-western North America. Some other names for them are: Brazilian aardvarks, Mexican tejón or moncún, hog-nosed coons, pizotes, Panamanian gatosolos, crackoons and (my personal favorite-) snookum bears.

I had never heard of a coati/snookum bear until now. I love learning new things via postcards.

I tell people all the time, almost everything I know, I read on a postcard. :D
