Kinkajous

Kinkajous are awesome nocturnal animals! Most people think they are primates but they are actually more closely related to raccoons! They are actually the only other animal in the carnivore order other than the bearcat that have a prehensile tail! They also have a 5-inch long tongue which they use to reach one of their favorite snacks, sweet nectar! Those big eyes, ears, and long whiskers are vital to helping them get around at night. You might not always see these guys at the zoo, they sleep a lot!
