Viral Video: A video is going viral on social media in which a group of “baby dinosaurs” are seen running on a beach. This video has been shared by Buitengbieden on Twitter. The caption of the post said, “It took me a few seconds.” The creatures seen in the video look like sauropods of a young dinosaur species with long necks that are running towards the sea. This 14-second video has left Twitter users confused.
Although some quickly learned that this was not a group of dinosaurs. “Cotis, also known as coatimundis, are members of the Procyonidae family. They are mammals native to South America, Central America, Mexico, and the southwestern United States. The name “cotimundi” comes from the Tupian languages of Brazil, where It means “Lonely Quote”. The video has been viewed over 10.8 million times on Twitter and retweeted over 48,000 times.

One user commented, “I showed this to my 9 year old son and it took him a few seconds to figure out what was going on. It took me a million years, which is the effect of watching Jurassic movies for the rest of your life.”
Adult coats range in size from 33 to 69 cm (13 to 27 in) from head to tail, which can be as long as their bodies. Coatis are the size of a large house cat, being about 30 cm (12 in) tall at the shoulder and weighing between 2 and 8 kg (4.4 and 17.6 lb).
