Peeper is a kinkajou (kink- a -joo) a.k.a. honey bear
because of its soft, fluffy, golden-brown fur.
They are nocturnal which means they sleep all
day and play all night in the Central and South
American rainforest. They are arboreal and have
a long prehensile tail that can hold onto objects
like another arm. They also have a 6-inch tongue
that they use to get nectar from flowers. That
would be like a human with a 2-foot tongue. A
kinkajou can make a soft peeping noise and can
also have its peep travel for miles. Although
a kinkajou eats mostly fruits it will also eat
nectar, honey, eggs, insects, small reptiles,
small birds, and small animals. They even hang
upside-down when eating fruit so they don't lose
any nectar. Another interesting fact is that they
are the only meat-eaters that are pollinators.
