Formerly Known As A Wild Life, Coatimundis In Arenal National Park

Formerly Known As A Wild Life, Coatimundis In Arenal National Park

These relatives of North American racoon are widely spead all across Costa Rica. They are very smart and well adopted to ever changing world. In Arenal national park these guys guard in groups main roads every 2-3 km with very strictly defined zones of "business" and whenever busses approach they jump on the shoulders to attract an attention and get some snack. This trick never fails, LOL !

I sincerely hope you don't save this creature on your wish list. Just look at the guy on the right I know what I have to do when I come across this .

The origins of crotch holder are very questionable as it seems to be that he descended from Irish bus, unfortunately even my diabolic CCD could not x-ray through those couple of fellas... Yet, I have to admit that message of ultimate truth, delivered by mother nature and represented by coatimundis, has seeded an enormous amount of fear and panic in the hearts of these side-roaded apologists of Hillary, Blair, Barak, Mubarak and galactic Bardak ( see for explanation of last word, which meets Barak Obama's and alikes presidential credentials ) !

Hello Eldar. A very fine image indeed... but you really do little justice for the human beings in this photo.; the Coatimundis appear much more human than the humans. ... but you know, o evil one.... the sometimes the camera, in the right hands discovers the ultimate truth.... and it looks like one of the humans is so afraid of this truth, that he has to hold his crotch in fear..... he must have been an American and a Hilary supporter. Ciao, Michael.
