Wild Animal Wednesday: Maria the Coatimundi


(WRBL) — Things got extra wild for Wild Animal Wednesday on News 3 This Morning.

Maria the Coatimundi came to the set with her handler from Wild Animal Safari in Pine Mountain.

At about 00:23, you’ll see Maria getting extra excited for a hug from Anchor Shay Harris.

After she calmed down, Maria didn’t get excited for anything else except for the grapes in her trainer’s hands.

Coatimundi are mammals in the raccoon family.

Maria is a Ring-Tailed Coatimundi which are most commonly found in South and Central America.

Tune in for the next monthly Wild Animal Wednesday and WRBL’s weekly Pet of the Week segment every Tuesday.
