Long Island Kinkajous

Long Island Zoo Animal Facts


The Kinkajou, also known by the nickname "Honey Bear," is a nocturnal rainforest mammal related to the raccoon. It is the only member of the genus Potos. An adult Kinkajou usually weighs five to six pounds.

Though classified as a carnivore and equipped with sharp teeth, Kinkajous prefer to eat fruit and honey. Living in South American trees, they are not a particularly rare animal but they are not often seen by people. Like raccoons, kinkajous have remarkable ability for manipulating objects, rivaling that of primates.
