Your morning adorable: Young coatis explore

Coati

Two young coatis, Rosalie (above) and her brother Jasper, were born in Germany's Hannover Adventure Zoo in late April.  Since then, they've been confined to an indoor area -- until today, when they were permitted to venture outside for the first time.

Coatis are relatives of raccoons and are sometimes referred to as "hog-nosed raccoons."  Their long snouts are very flexible and can be rotated up to 60 degrees in any direction.
