Ladies and gentlemen...allow me to introduce...the binturong!

And the animal of the week for February 22-28 is...the binturong!! Hailing from the rainforests of Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, the binturong enjoys hanging out in tree canopies, watching old movies, and having a prehensile tail. Also commonly referred to as a "bearcat," "Asian bearcat", or "Palawan bearcat," this fuzzy little dude has been known to make chuckle-like sounds when pleased, and wail if annoyed.
