The Coatimundi

Posted January 21, 2019 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. This week we will enter the world of the Coatimundi. Coatimundi are also called by the names: Hog-nosed Coon, Snookum Bear, and Brazilian Aardvark. That’s a lot of aliases to remember so we will just stick with coatimundi, it feels easier. This native of the southern North American and South American continents is diurnal, meaning it is a day time creature. There are many types of coati, the White-nosed which can be found in on both continents and the Brown-nosed which is exclusive to the southern continent. The coati live in…

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. Winter is in full swing and I must say, we have been able to dodge the brunt of the winter storms, I wont complain about that.

Greetings friends and welcome to the end of 2018. Can you believe it? Another 365 days and 52 weeks are now in the books. 2018 saw a number of new features in Timbavati Wildlife Park. From our pasture with the aoudad in them to the new goat bridge in the interaction area there was no shortage of new and interesting things to see in them. One curious addition to the Waterfalls area was the bearded barbet. Now honestly I wasn’t even really sure what a barbet was at first. LOL I just knew that the bird scared me a little…

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. If you’re looking something cool to do over the Christmas break remember we’re open most days. Check our website for Encounter Tour times and the days we’re open. This week I figured we could pop on over to the waterfalls area and take a look at our pals the porcupines.

Another fun fact is that porcupines have roughly 30,000 covering…

I’m kidding but a hedgehog will ball up on you if frightened or even sleeping.   Hedgehogs can be found in Europe, Asia, Africa and they were introduced to New Zealand. The hedgehog or hedgie as it is sometimes referred…

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. This week we’re going to take a look at our mob of kangaroos.

Kangaroos are very social creatures. They live in a hierarchy that is governed by one dominant male. This alpha male decides the course that the mob will take as they forage through the outback. The females in a mob will have very close connections…
