Coatis tails at Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Today’s Latin adventure travel photo is of a group of South American coatis march along the pedestrian railing at Iguazu Falls, Argentina with their tails in the air.  Although this photo likely looks quite cute, it doesn’t tell the whole story.  This was my second day visiting Iguazu Falls and I decided to arrive as soon as the park opened.  Instead of going to see Devil’s Throat (which is where most tourists first flock) I instead took the path less traveled.  I had the park entirely to myself; however, I was scared when these coatis tried to steal my tripod.  I was totally outnumbered and had never encountered these creatures before in my life.  I thought they closely resembled raccoons which have a reputation at times of sometimes biting.  Luckily, these fascinating animals were really only interested in my tripod bag.  After I snatched it from the ground and held it firmly in my hands they went along on their merry way.   This is a travel photo from Iguazu Falls, Argentina.  To view more photos from my time exploring Igauzu Falls from both the Argentine and Brazilian side, click on the cute tails.
