Admittedly, we didn't know anything about the Coati until we caught sight of this video released by the San Francisco Zoo, which shows, among other things, how much Snookum Bears love Halloween.

The S.F. Zoo released this video of two Coatis, Rosie and Maggie, chowing down on some of their favorite edibles: pumpkins, spices, and treats. They also like to rub themselves in perfume (to freshen up their tails!).

Anyway, the Zoo surprised us with footage of the two very active sisters enjoying another day in confinement:

Per the Zoo:

Did you know that pumpkins make for great enrichment for our active and curious South American Coati at the San Francisco Zoo? In this video, see them play and enjoy treats, while learning about these adorable creatures. Remember to hold onto your Trick or Treat bags tightly when you come to boo at the zoo -- we're masked bandits and we love treats.

Now we kinda want to know what Banana-Sam's plans are for Halloween.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
