Congratulations to Cathy C. and Julie T. for both suggesting the winning name submission! You own the bragging rights! Our new coatimundi, now 7 months old, has been named “Cody”! Cody and Callie…that has a nice ring to it! We want to thank everyone for their suggestions and for your support of our mission!
If you did not read the original article, Cody is a white-nosed coatimundi that had been a private pet. He was born in early June and has grown a lot since arriving at the Ranch at 8 weeks old.
When he first arrived, we kept him in isolation to protect him and all our other animals. He received vaccinations and vet check-ups just like a puppy or kitten. Now that he is bigger, he lives in the enclosure near Khala Hala and BJ, the leopards. He’ll be neutered when he’s about 6 months old. Ultimately, he may be introduced to Callie, our other coatimundi, to see if they can live together.
He loves to climb and explore his new home, burrowing in his blankets and hunting for delicious insects. He eats raw meat, veggies and lots of fruit. He enjoys cookies and marshmallows as treats, of course.
Come meet our new baby!
