Kinkajou

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Potos Flavus

The kinkajoy is also known as a honey bear or sun bear, as its face looks similiar to that of a cub bear.  Kinkajous are extremely social and sweet natured animals that are nocturnal, so they are difficult to spot during the day.  Kinkajous have a tail that can be used for gripping anything, much like another arm.  The tail is also used for hanging and balancing the body.  It also serves as a cozy blanket, while the kinkajou sleeps in the high canopy.
