One morning in late summer, naturalist Doug Moore was driving in Madera Canyon in southeastern Arizona. He suddenly noticed a strange-looking animal in the middle of the road. At first Doug thought it was a monkey, but as the car inched closer, the animal spun around to face him head-on. It wasn't a monkey-it was a mysterious white-nosed coati!

Look inside to learn more about these secretive animals, including how they hunt, raise their young, and survive in the wild. You'll also find out how humans are helping to make sure that coatis-truly among America's finest hidden animal treasures-are around for a long, long time.
