Omnivorous. Imelda out Palawan Binturong loved her fruit and veg more especially a mango!

Threatened due to habitat loss and the pet trade. Also used to produce Kopi Luwak. A type of coffee that is roasted from coffee beans that have been ingested and eaten by binturong and civets before they are cleaned and roasted, often in appauling welfare conditions
Imelda joins us from Kirkleatham Zoo. She is settling in well but can be quite shy and is often asleep on her rest area at the far corner of her outdoor areas
