The 14 seconds video was shared on Twitter by Buitengebieden,with the caption, "This took me a few seconds."

"That is so good. Lol. Took me a few too," posted a twitter user.

However, few were quick enough point out that it wasn't a group of dinosaurs.

"Coatis, also known as coatimundis, are members of the family Procyonidae. They are diurnal mammals native to South America, Central America, Mexico, and the southwestern United States. The name "coatimundi" comes from the Tupian languages of Brazil, where it means "lone coati," a user tweeted explained.

"I showed this to my 9-year-old son and it took him a few seconds to figure out what's going on. Took me a million years that's the effect of watching Jurassic movies all your life," a third user commented.

Since posted, the video has garnered over 9.8 million views and thousands of likes on Twitter.
