Mac, an orphaned coatimundi, is hand-reared and prepared for life with his real family - with the help of a stuffed toy. Tiny Mac is having to be bottle-fed up by staff at Porfell Wildlife Park, near Liskeard, Cornwall, after being abandoned at birth by his mother. Mac is slowly being weaned off milk and within another six weeks could be living full-time with his other four family members at the park. In the meantime he is living with the next best thing, a toy coatimundi to help with his familiarisation. The coatimundi, native to South America and noted for its distinctive ring-tail, lives on the ground and in trees primarily eating fruit, invertebrates, other small animals and birds’ eggs.
