Binturongs

Arctictis Binturong

Binturongs are often called bearcats, but they are actually related to civets and fossas. They spend most of their time in trees and use scent glands to mark their territory. The scent smells like popcorn to most people. Binturongs are amazing climbers due to their padded paws, semi-retractable claws, and ankles that turn 180 degrees.
