Where does he feel most at home?

The binturong lives in the rain forests found in the South of Asia. They prefer to live on a mountain side. In some countries they’re kept as pets.

What's his favourite food?

They’re omnivorous; they like fruits, especially berries, but will eat leaves, browse, insects, eggs and small rodents as well. If a bird is captured, it will be eaten with feathers and everything.

Fun fact

The binturong will spend most of its life in a tree. They’re the only civet catlike animals and one of the few predators with a gripping tail. The tail is used for balance and support when reaching for a branch with fruit on.
