Interesting Facts about Kinkajou

Kinkajous have several unique features, including a prehensile tail that acts like a fifth limb, aiding in their arboreal lifestyle. They can turn their feet backward to run easily in either direction along branches or climb down trees headfirst. Known for their playful and gentle nature, Kinkajous are also called “honey bears” due to their sweet tooth and ability to raid beehives. Despite their cute appearance, they have a complex vocal range and can be quite vocal at night.
