Introducing Lycopsis longirostrus, the killer coati of South America!  Lycopsis longirostrus was originally thought to be some sort of canine or thylacine-like animal, it turned out to be a sparassodont, meaning it's related to the uncommon, but most known member, Thylacosmilus atrox.  The sparassodonts of South America are relatives of marsupials than they are to placental mammals, meaning they exhibit pouches.  Lycopsis longirostrus has both signs of terrestrial and arboreal lifestyles meaning it would be a land predator, but live in the trees from time to time to stay away from the land crocodiles that lived in Middle Miocene South America.  It preyed upon small rodents and other small animals it could catch.
