Raccoons vs Coatimundi

Postby Peacefulward » Tue Aug 08, 2017 6:06 pm

I see coatimundi compared with kinkajous a lot, but never raccoons.

How do raccoons differ in behavior from coatis? Are they more independent, aggressive, etc?

A lot of the criticism I hear about coatis is their tendency to become aggressive when adults, but I've spoken to a lot of owners who say it depends on a lot of things (mainly whether they have proper enclosures and enrichment). Apparently the people who keep them completely indoors with large parrot cages have the most problems.
Do raccoons also share this?

In your opinion, do you think raccoons "are better" than coatis? Do you think one is harder to care for and handle than the other? And if so explain why. icon-smile

I can't help with the comparison because I've never had a coati. But the aggression with coons, IMO its the cages that are a problem. You cannot cage an animal and expect a pet.

I definitely agree with the social part. Vega grooms me, brings me food, follows me around the house, etc.

Vega enjoys (lightly) nipping my dogs from behind then running away. He does this to certain people in my family too, and it’s alwaus on the back side of your shin. I don’t think it’s him being territorial or agressive or anything, he’s not displaying and defensive or aggressive postures or vocalizations, just him trying to instigate play. Or maybe just being mean, who knows. :lol:

I totally agree about the cage issue. that is the worse thing anyone can do with any animal.
Last year, I sold two raccoons to someone. I asked to see pictures of them later.
I was shocked to see they were in a bird cage :roll: Needless to say, I made sure I told this person, sadly, I was ignored.

On the coati's, never had one either. however. after speaking with people that has or had coati's did say, they are more aggressive than raccoons.
however, I don't think it stands true for all coatis. :shrug:

I personally think raccoons are easier to raise than most coati's. again, never had one personally. could be the way they were cared for :shrug:

Like really? I can't imagine mine would do it.


Yep, I’m not sure if he’s bringing me gifts or just leaving/caching his food with me because he thinks it’s “safe here”. He’ll bring apple slices or other bad goodies until my lap, drop them, and do something else.
