Baby Binturong!!!

Postby Elina » Fri Apr 19, 2013 5:02 pm

Sorry, no photos as I would have felt funny taking photos but I spent some of today playing with a baby binturong!!!!

Oh my gosh she was THE most adorable little ball of fur! Audrey has played with an adult one before but that was basically being it's tree but this little one was just. . . wow!

She climbed all over me and Mr E, she licked and sucked my fingers (their tongues are scratchy like cat tongues), she constantly was sniffing and making this sort of purring noise. If you petted her tail she would wrap it around you and not bother turning to see who/what you were and her little 'hands' were so cute! I am like so totally in love!

Sadly she is not for sale but I really, really hope to get one at some point in the future. It was quite amazing that I was playing with a cute, fluffy critter who when climbing all over me made me smell of popcorn and not fox hehehe.

The last one the guy sold was £4,000 so not cheep by any stretch of the imagination which got me to thinking; Is there anything like a bintrong that I should look into before delving deep into my pockets? I know Kink's have a prehensile tail and sort of hands but is that as far as the similarities go? I know they are not related but they seem the closest I can find hence I ask. :icon-wink:

You can't import them anyway because of SARS(or some disease I may be confused). You will need to buy one in the US once you get here.

I pet a baby once he showed me his teeth because I was disturbing his nap.

Oh that sucks! Oh well one less plane ticket ha!

I nearly forgot to mention the most adorable thing she did! When her human dad put her back to bed she was crying for him and then he ignored her so she had like a mini hissy-fit and kicked a fleece jumper around then went back to the bars and cried at him some more! Just so mindbogglingly cute!

So anyway, is there anything like a binturong that is not a binturong if you know what I mean?

What a cute, fun experience! I just love binturongs and would die to have the chance to interact with one.

I don't think so. They are pretty unique.

A fossa? But good luck finding one. Eupleridae are kind of like Viverridae but not banned, but not normally easily found for sale. Some of my favorite "mongooses" are Eupleridae and not true mongooses.

Well Mr E has decided that he is going to probably get a kink and then a binturong. Are there many breeders?

For kinks or for bents? Chasing tail breeds bents but not sure what you need to do to get on her good side to get on the list for a baby. I know they come up for public sale(like EAS site) rarely enough they are expensive when they do.
