binturong, bearcat (Arctictis binturong)

THE BINTURONG. This is an animal of such differing characteristics that it is difficult to classify, ft has ear-tufts like a Lynx, its claws are
partly retractile like those of a Cat. it has a prehensile tail like some of the American Monkeys, has much in its structure that reminds one of the Civet family,
with which it is placed by some naturalists, but is somewhat clumsy and slow, and has many traits of the Bear family, with which it is generally classed. It is
appropriately pictured in a tropical forest, for it is an arboreal animal and is found in southeastern Asia and on the Malay Islands. (Arctictis bintimng )
Date 1895

The binturong (Arctictis binturong), also known as bearcat, is a viverrid native to South and Southeast Asia. Although called 'bearcat', this omnivorous mammal is neither related to bears nor cats but to the palm civets of Asia. Its genus name Arctictis means ‘bear-weasel’.
