white nosed coati


Tikal, Mexico

The Coati is a raccoon-like omnivore, but is more slender and possesses a longer snout. It is a nosy, busy little creature with an insatiable appetite. The Coati is gregarious and noisy as it travel about in groups of from 6 to 24, holding its tail like a question mark and chattering with others. This was a rogue male, traveling alone, and not at all afraid of me foraging as I was sitting in the grass.

Finished up this lifesized (almost 4 feet from nose to tailtip) coati plush today for a customer :D This cutie pie is made from four kinds of faux fur, soft faux suede, and has plastic safety eyes and nose.

I am pleased to say I AM open to doing remakes of this commission. Custom colors are okay too. I am however not open for general custom plush commissions.

I’ll put a listing for these up on Etsy in a little bit, you can also order through email, they’re $175. lobitaworks@gmail.com

No Christmas deadlines are available at this point, however.
