I learned a lot about these creatures, called binturongs or “bearcats”, during research for a children’s book I was working on. They chuckle when happy and they’re pretty cute. They smell like buttered popcorn and they’re kinda really cute. They live high up in the forest canopy and very rarely come down to the ground. Oh, and did I mention they are cute 😀
The San Diego Zoo in California has a binturong. If anyone visits the zoo, be sure to check out their resident bearcat!
