Logan M. is Most Looking Forward to Seeing a Kinkajou!
The animal that I am looking forward to seeing in Costa Rica is the Kinkajou. It is a mammal that lives in the rain forest and is a relative of the raccoon. It spends most of its life in the treetops and is mostly nocturnal. It has a long tail and a face that I think looks like a lemur's. They may appear cute, but some have been known to attack their owners holding on with their claws and tail!
Dr V.: I had the chance to see these on a night hike in Belize! Logan is right, they are only active in the dark.
