Lily Coatimundi

[/et_pb_sidebar] Home»Species»Coatimundi» Lily is pretty shy and a lot more reserved than Macano. Contrary to that though, on cold days she is usually the one who is out and about more.  Lily loves insects and is quick to gobble them up as quickly as she can. Born October 4, 2006 Rescued October 4, 2016 Life StoryPictures How Lily Came to the Sanctuary Lily came to Carolina Tiger Rescue with her enclosure mate Macano and 14 other animals from a facility out in west.  This facility was closed down due when the owner fell ill.  Carolina Tiger Rescue worked with several other sanctuaries from around the country to find homes for over 100 animals.  Personality Though they have not been with us long, Lily and her enclosure mate, Macano, are making themselves right at home at Carolina Tiger Rescue.  Lily seems to be a bit shyer than Macano but she enjoys coming up to see what the keepers have brought her for food each day.  She loves red meat and prefers to eat her meat before her fruit!  Lily displays a bit of OCD behavior by walking up and down the corner of her enclosure over and over.  We are hoping that with a new environment, once she settles in that we will see a decrease in this behavior.
