Kinkajou (Potos flavus)

I wish I had more time here at the Amazon Research and Conservation Center (ARCC), as I would then had time to focus on nocturnal life in addition to the diurnal. A couple of nights I did manage to stay up a few hours to look for nocturnal fauna, and the forest was teaming with life. But to see many of them you need to have a long lens and a flashlight, as this kinkajou (Potos flavus) is a canopy-dweller.

It was foraging for food, and was only temporarily curious about my presence, rather than disturbed by my light and camera-noice.
