Binturong

Binturong - (Arctictis binturong)
The binturong is an arboreal animal, meaning it lives in the trees. Binturongs have black fur and can weigh 30 to 40 pounds. From head to tail they are 46 to 73 inches long, but their body length is only 24 to 39 inches long. Its prehensile tail is very useful when climbing in the trees and hanging on branches. They can walk upside down hanging from branches with the use of their tail. The tail is also used as a brake when running head first down a tree, like a squirrel. When resting in a tree, it will lie on its stomach with its feet dangling, but its tail will have a firm hold, protecting it from falling. Its curved claws are used for holding on to uneven surfaces on the trees. The well-developed pads on the bottom of the paws help it run on the branches of trees. But when they are on the ground, binturongs walk flat-footed like bears.
