Strange Nature: Meet This Fascinating Creature, The Binturong

Binturong (Arctichs binturong) IUCN Vulnerable

Binturongs are long-bodied and have short legs with a short muzzle which is pointed; they also have very thick black fur. Their eyes are very round and black and they have a very bushy tail, and females are generally 20% bigger than males.
The binturongs are also known as bearcats. They move around very slowly, and whenever I see them at Longleat they are laying around on branches looking very relaxed and content. These animals are normally very shy, however they can be aggressive if harassed and then they may bare their teeth. The diet of a binturong is mainly figs and fruits. In this enclosure there are two male Binturongs.
