AbstractA white-nosed coati (Nasua narica) was seen on two occasions in Victoria County, Texas, while conducting a study on biodiversity of the area. The first sighting occurred on 27 July 1994, in riparian habitat approximately 1.0 mi SW of the Guadalupe River and 2.7 mi E of Highway 77 (28° 44’ 30” N, 97° 01’ 00” W). This represents the first sightings of a coati in Texas in nearly 30 years and the northernmost observation of a coati in the Gulf Prairies region of Texas.
