Fern, the binturong (or bearcat), eats a piece of banana held by Brannon Rapp, a Columbus Zoo employee, during the presentation Thursday. The zoo representative giving the presentation, Tommy Dodge, said Fern smells like popcorn and told the students that binturongs have prehensile tail, meaning they can use it to grasp things.
