The Coati's home range stretches from South-western US, particularly Arizona and Mexico to the Amazon rain forests of South America. All the way to the Argentina and Uruguay. This hardy tree climber is as much home on the ground as it is on tree branches. Perhaps because of it's diet, which includes Insects, fruits, mice, lizards and frogs. The Coati's home range is wide to woodlands to desserts, grasslands to forests.

We all know that nutrition affects the height & weight and these Alaskan Brown Bear lives on the coast are proof. They don't have any problem finding Salmon in river. So raised on the fishy diet they can grow over 1500 Pounds, that's the size of the 10 Grown Men. But not all Brown Bears can grow that big.
