Kinkajou night stalkers

Duration: 02:04

Kinkajous are perfectly adapted for life in the trees at night, only coming out in the dark when there is little competition for food. Large eyes help them see at night but their most important sense is smell, which they use to navigate at night. Kinkajous mark their trails through the trees using scent glands on their face and stomach to leave a smelly map of their routes. They are also very flexible and a prehensile tail allows them to bend and stretch to find the very best food during their nocturnal foraging trips.
