I have been thinking a lot about fruit. First we had Europejara, the frugivorous pterosaur. Then our plum tree started dropping dollops of fruit all over the yard. I found myself working as a dispersal agent for the plums by giving them away to anyone who would take 'em. I guess these events got my subconscious looking at fruit eaters of a slightly weirder bent than your run of the mill monkeys/birds. And the animal that popped into my head was the Dr. Seuss escapee....the Binturong.
|Binturong- Arctictis binterong|
|Strangler Fig- sp. unkn|
And besides the Binturong is such an unusual, widely overlooked critter that any publicity I could create for the critter is worth it.
I mean look at that freak ( I don't mean Conan btw).
