How old does a South American coati get? (age expectancy)

What is the maximal age a South American coati reaches?

An adult South American coati (Nasua nasua) usually gets as old as 17.67 years.

South American coatis are around 75 days in the womb of their mother. When born, they weight 145 grams (0.32 lbs) and measure 3 cm (0′ 2″). As a member of the Procyonidae family (genus: Nasua), their offspring is 3 babies per pregnancy. Fully grown, they reach a bodylength of 52.8 cm (1′ 9″).

As a reference: Usually, humans get as old as 100 years, with the average being around 75 years. After being carried in the belly of their mother for 280 days (40 weeks), they grow to an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″) and weight in at 62 kg (137 lbs), which is obviously highly individual.

The South American coati (can-coon) (Nasua nasua), also called the ring-tailed coati, is a coati species and a member of the raccoon family (Procyonidae), from tropical and subtropical South America. In Brazilian Portuguese, it is known as quati. An adult generally weighs 2–7.2 kg (4.4–15.9 lb) and is 85–113 cm (33–44 in) long, with half of that being its tail. Its color is highly variable and the rings on the tail may be only somewhat visible, but its distinguishing characteristic is that it lacks the largely white snout (or “nose”) of its northern relative, the white-nosed coati.
