a bearcat is neither bear nor cat

A bearcat recently escaped from Melbourne Zoo. Bearcats are neither bears nor cats, but a funny looking animal called binturong, native to the rainforests of Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Palawan Island..

A bearcat like the one that briefly tasted freedom today.

Thankfully, the bearcat was found. It could have ended up as a snack for one of the big cats (lions) nearby.

Happy Tuesday.

Now that it tasted freedom, I bet it will be even more determined to escape again!
