Meet Morotai and Patani

While I don't know which is which, they're both pretty adorable. Also known as Binturong, the Bearcat is native to the rainforest areas of Southeast Asia but isn't a bear at all and is closer related to cat-like civets and genets. In fact, the local language that offered its name is extinct so your guess is as good as mine as to what the name truly means.

I used to volunteer at a private zoo and they had two of these guys. They're very cool animals, and oddly enough they release a musk that smells exactly like buttered popcorn!
