Island Wildlife: Pygmy Raccoons

 

This new article in our series about native Cozumel wildlife takes a look at the island's Pygmy Raccoons.

Pygmy Raccoons are seen frequently in the north-west of Cozumel, so it's sometimes hard to believe that these friendly little creatures are actually on the endangered species list.

However, even though they can be quite easy to spot, they are endemic to Cozumel, meaning they are not found anywhere else in the world.
