The binturong (Arctictis binturong) is a large, rare mammal that lives in trees in the dense forests of southeast Asia.
Anatomy: Binturongs have thick, black fur, a long, muscular tail, and long, stiff, white whiskers. They use their prehensile tail almost like another hand; young binturongs can even hang by their tail. Binturongs grow to be up to about 5 feet (1.5 m) long. Like other civets, the binturongs use scent marks to communicate with other binturongs. In captivity, binturongs live for about 30 years.
Diet: Binturongs eat fruit and small animals that they find using their sense of smell to find food. They hunt for food at night - they are nocturnal.
Classification: Class Mammalia (mammals), Order Viverridae (Civets), Genus Arctictis, Species A. binturong.
