The Binturong of Timbavati Wildlife Park

By Timbavati Administrator Monday, October 24, 2016

Greetings and salutations friends of Timbavati Wildlife Park. Fall has fully settled in and the leaves are about to give way to the frozen winds of the holiday season. As we reach the conclusion of our season I beg you fear not. We have plenty of animal pictures films and facts to keep you entertained for the entire winter.

With that bit of business concluded we are moving on to the binturong which is also known as a bear-cat.

About The Binturong

The Binturong is native of South-East Asia. It is an omnivore that lives on a diet of fruit, insects, birds and mammals. Being a nocturnal loner, it will typically live its life in the trees. Due to its relatively large size, at 20 to 30 pounds it is too heavy to move from branch to branch.

This mammal has a prehensile tail. This means that they can use their tail to hold or grasp things. They are one of only two carnivores that have this feature. The other carnivore is the kinkajou.

The binturong reaches sexual maturity at 2-3 years of age and has a gestation period of 92 days. Timbavati Wildlife Park is home to a pair of binturong and you can check them out in this weeks video.

Talk with you next week!
