      The Binturong (Arctictis binturong), also known as the Asian bearcat, the Palawan bearcat, or simply the bearcat, is a species of the family Viverridae, which includes the civets and genets. It is the only member of its genus. The binturong is neither a bear nor a cat, and the real meaning of the original name has been lost.

      The binturong (Arctictis binturong), also known as Palawin or Asian bearcat, is a viverrid found in South and Southeast Asia. It is uncommon or rare over much of its range and listed as Vulnerable by IUCN because of a population decline estimated to be more than 30% over the last 30 years because Binturongs live tall forests in Asia, and they're being cut down.

This one was gentle, too.

      Bearcats leave a scent behind that smells like buttered popcorn.
