Sandos Resort & Hotel Animal Videos:

Here is a collection of videos showing you wildlife and animals visitors have found at Sandos Caracol or Sandos Playacar in Mexico.  These animals live naturally throughout the Riviera Maya and Yucatan Peninsula.  Many of these Mexican animals were a part of the Mayan world and they created Mayan animal Symbols you may see while on excursion.

Mexico's White Nosed Coati

Coatis at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort

My favorite are the Coatis also known as: 

Mexican raccoon, Kudamundi, Coatimundi, Pizot, Hog-nosed raccoon, Tejón, Moncún, Cusumbo, Cuchucho, Cholugo, Gato Solo, Hog Nosed Coon and Nasua.

These guys and girls travel and live in packs from 5 to 20.  If you see and feed one it won’t be long before a bunch more show up. 

Coatis are 13 to 27 inches in length and weigh 4 to 18 pounds.  They sleep in elevated areas like the forest canopy and can be active both day or night.  Coatis live about 7 years in the wild but can live in captivity up to 15. 

Coatis are omnivores and their diet consists of ground litter, invertebrates, tarantula, and fruit.  They also eat small vertebrate prey such as lizards, rodents, small birds, bird eggs and crocodile eggs.

Agouti or Sereque

Agoutis have five front and three hind toes; the first toe is very small. The tail is very short or nonexistent and hairless.  Agoutis are very shy and live in the forest areas.

Spider Monkeys

Spider Monkey

The Spider Monkey (Wiki) is an endangered new world monkey (Wiki).  Spider Monkeys are in the Atelidae family which are the only primates to have a tail they can grab things with. 

The Spider Monkey is one of the largest monkeys and lives in the upper rain forest.  They eat mainly fruits and nuts.  If food is scarce they may eat insects, leaves, bird eggs, bark and honey.  They live in groups of 15 to 40 and there primary predators are humans.

New studies show that the Spider Monkey is the smartest of the new world monkeys.  They can live up to 22 years and there tail is twice as long as their body!
