Book cover, Coati Kingdom, non-fiction nature about coatimundis.

A First-Person Natural History Biography

Pet owners rejoice, wildlife enthusiasts curl your toes. Finally a complete picture of these beloved creatures, with all the facts - and photos galore. Often hilarious, at times harrowing, Coati Kingdom charts the story of three orphaned babies caught up in the illegal pet trade in Belize, Central America, their rehabilitation and soft release back into the wild and ultimately their creation of a band of coatimundis that now exceeds 80 members.

The British author, Alan Graham, debunks many myths about coatimundis and exposes the real facts. He has worked in the forests of Central America with these delightful animals for over 12 years, living with coatimundis as part of their wild band. In his book the author discusses their diet, physical attributes and range, how he deals with mischievous characters and follows expectant mothers. Everything about coatis is covered in this book, from inhumane and cruel captivity, abhorrent hunting practises and pet rescue, to government regulations and scientific evaluations. It is a detailed and factual account of the natural history of this exotic animal.

Coatis are owned as pets in their hundreds of thousands, many in the US. They are kept as exhibits by zoological parks around the world. They are loved and adored by all who encounter them. They are ridiculously cute as babies, however coatimundis can become extremely dangerous upon reaching adulthood... pet owners beware!

Why do coatis walk backwards? What do they really use their ringed tails for? Find out here in this charmingly explicit book. Packed full of fun facts and information about what these little monsters get up to in the wild, Coati Kingdom will shock and delight you on every page.

EXCERPT from Chapter Nine:

"It saddens me most of all to think of a male coati's life. They do not run with the band, they live solitary lives and for that reason were once thought by explorers of the ‘New World' centuries ago to be an entirely separate species. They were even classified as such with the suffix “mundi” meaning alone, erroneously stuck on the end of “coati”. The name Coatimundi is therefore, a misnomer.
To think that a young boy grows up in the band, he learns about love and trust, he plays and snuggles, is adored by his mom and siblings... But then, at barely 18 months of age, his whole life is torn apart by the ego of an alpha male who chases him out, never to be loved again. For that reason I have a special affinity towards my young boys — I can’t help it."
