    Hiya!

    In the UK and Europe, which zoo's have binturong? Or any useful websites where I can find this information out?

    Thank you!

    Hi ChrissySalem, welcome to zoochat.

    You can add Belfast and Linton to your list. :)

    Zootierliste's list of European zoos with binturong is really quite long.

    Thats because they are not on-show to the public!

    Don't think Belfast do any shows,so they are just off-show hence the zoo not saying they have them on the website.

    Exmoor and druisillas received the Cambodian binturong! The palawans went to Belfast and Parken zoo! :)

    Fingers crossed the Belfast Palawans go on-show *someday* - after all, the Edinburgh binturongs were offshow for years :)

    Do Paignton still have them? I seem to remember a private collection breeding them last year and reporting in on here.
