I couldn’t help but be reminded of Baloo in Disney’s The Jungle Book when I saw this bear having a good old rub against the tree trunk in Edinburgh Zoo.
He wasn’t the only animal enjoying the Scottish sunshine, while London drowned over the Jubilee weekend.
This sea lion was having a kip, but just for a change the Amur Leopard (the world’s rarest big cat, there are only 38 in the wild) was pacing up and down its enclosure.
Which made a change from all the other big cats who were all having a nice lie down.
‘Look it’s a rat-bear thing’ called a little voice.
Actually that’s not a bad description as the binturong is also known as a bearcat. It’s not a bear but a relative of the civet and is found in forested parts of Bangladesh, Nepal, Malaysia, Indonesia and Indochina where it eats fruit, eggs and small rodents.
