Blissfully asleep..

Spotted this guy snoozing so peacefully. It’s a binturong! This unique animal which is also commonly called the Asian bearcat is native to the jungles of south-east Asia. They are related to civets and fossas but look more like gigantic dust mops and smell like a freshly made batch of popcorn! It is so sad that these wonderful creatures are now listed as vulnerable in some parts of their range and endangered in others.
