The kinkajou is also known as a honey bear or sun bear, as its face looks similar 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.
