Binturongs are mammals in Additional Creatures.


Binturongs are small but chunky mammals, a type of civet, and omnivore. Found only in tropical environments, this species from the modern world is known for a very bizarre trait- they smell like Popcorn. Affectionately called “BearCats”, Binturong on the arks are very much the same as they were on our own home- though a little bigger, and for some reason, packing a venomous bite. They likely evolved this with their tough-for-their-size physique in order to fend of their smaller natural predators. Rough and tumble, when tamed, they are affectionate and even lazy pets that are good company. However, many a smart survivor have tamed them for an additional purpose- their strange scent. When tamed, it appears the effects of this strange scent amplify, causing nearby wild creatures to become hungry. This makes it an excellent taming partner!
