In Real Life

Binturongs are a species that can be found across Southeast Asia. They are the largest species in the Viverridae family, with their body length being between 61 to 96 cm, with a tail length of 56 to 89 cm and a weight of 9 to 20 kg. Their thick and muscular prehensile tail and strong grip in their claws gives them extra mobility when climbing through the treetops. Binturongs have mostly black fur with gray tips, long white whiskers and small round ears that have long ear tufts protruding from them.

A Binturong is primarily arboreal, living in the canopies of tall, dense, tropical forests. This animal is solitary, spending most of its time climbing trees, but also presents a high level of ground activity due to its large size in comparison to most arboreal animal species, being unable to leap from tree to tree. A particular gland in each side of its anus allows the Binturong to mark trees as it climbs to let other members of their species know where it has been, this scent being described as that of buttered popcorn.

Despise being in the order Carnivora, the binturong's diet consists mainly of fruits, such as those of the strangles fig tree, which seeds are known to be dispersed mainly by this mammal, giving the binturong a crucial role for the persistence of these forest ecosystems. They also feed on small preys such as insects, birds, fish and rodents.

Trivia

  • Binturongs are one of the only two animals in the order Carnivora with fully-prehensile tails, the other one being the kinkajou.
