Cotes are animals similar to the raccoon. They can be found from the southwestern United States down to the tip of Argentina. The cote has a longer nose than the raccoon; it uses its nose to explorer its habitat. The cote can live in trees and is equipped with a prehensile tail that acts as an extra limb to hold on to things. These animals are omnivores, which means they eat anything from fruits to snakes and lizards.
