Binturongs, also known as “bearcats,” are native to Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, Indonesia, and parts of China. They are they only Old World animals with prehensile tails, which they can use as a fifth limb when climbing trees, where they spend most of their time. They are known as “frugivores” because their diet consists of 80% fruit (making them important seed dispersers in the forest), although they are known to eat small mammals and birds on occasion. Females are larger than males and can grow up to 90 pounds in captivity! They are difficult to breed - much like kangaroos, they can halt their ovulation to prevent pregnancy. What’s the best part about bearcats? They smell like popcorn!
