What a surprise! A very old South American Coati unexpecedtly gave birth to two healthy pups!
The pups were born at Zoo Budapest and they're so freakin' CUTE!
Their mama, Juliet, is 15-years-old, which is twice as old as any coati would live in the wild!
So it was a complete surprise when she gave birth and even more of a surprise when the pups were healthy.
The zookeepers were worried that because of her age, Juliet wouldn't be able to raise her two babies. So the zookeepers are hand rearing one of the babies themselves.
Once the little guy grows up, he'll be a part of educational programs at the zoo.
They're a member of the raccoon family but clearly way more adorbz! We want a domesticated coati!
Congrats on the healthy babes, Juliet!
