These small, nimble, monkey-like animals, are real climbing-acrobats. Their short soft fur is red-brown or yellowish (belly). Their big, dark eyes are well adjusted to find the way in the dark, as the Kinkajou is a nocturnal mammal. They use their long seizing-tails to get a hold in the branches while they are searching for food. With their long tongue, they can even reach the nectar that is hidden deep in the flower. They are feeding on fruit and blossom.
