Name That Animal

I could go for a snooze right about now too.

The only rule is: no researching.  Just post your best guess in the comments for fun.  Reading other people’s answers before posting your own is optional. Answer will be posted in the comments later today.

  10. ANSWER TIME

    This is a binturong. From the Wiki entry for this animal:

    The Binturong (Arctictis binturong), also known as the Asian bearcat, the Palawan bearcat, or simply the bearcat, is a species of the family Viverridae, which includes the civets and genets. It is the only member of its genus. The binturong is neither a bear nor a cat, and the real meaning of the original name has been lost, as the local language that gave it that name is now extinct.[3]

    The binturong is nocturnal[4] and sleeps on branches. It eats primarily fruit, but has also been known to eat a wide range of animal matter as well. Deforestation has greatly reduced its numbers. It can make chuckling sounds when it seems to be happy and utter a high-pitched wail if annoyed; when cornered, it can be vicious.
    [...]
    The scent of binturong musk is often compared to that of warm buttered popcorn[3] and cornbread.

      It also has ridiculously cute ears. That wasn’t mentioned in the Wiki entry, but should’ve been.
