Binturongs, which are sometimes known as bearcats (though not a bear or a cat) are members of the family Viverridae, which also includes civets and genets. They are primarily frugivores (fruit eaters), but have been known to eat a wide variety of foods including small animals. Binturongs have a long prehensile tail that can be used during climbing or to provide extra grip and balance whilst sleeping in trees. Perhaps one of the most striking features of the binturong species is their scent, which has been described by some as being akin to popcorn. This species is found in forests throughout South-East Asia. by mry3

They're also known as sea-rafts or by-the-wind-sailors, for the obvious reason that it uses the the "sail" you can see in this image for locomotion. Because of this, they are often found washed up on beaches. by jeannine
