Kinkajous come in various sizes and there are 7 subspecies. The bigger varieties of Kinkajous can reach up to 18 pounds in weight, and about 25 inches in body length. Kinkajous tails can be used when climbing because of their grasping capability, which can almost be up to 45 cm. they are primarily arboreal in nature, but anything goes in captivity. Kinkajous can twist their rear feet backwards, so that the clawed toes can be used when descending head-first. Their palms are bare-skinned and front paws are very sensitive. In water or small openings they often dip their front paws and lick the juice or food off their paws. They have poor vision, and can’t sense differences in color, so they mainly rely on their well developed senses of smell and touch. They have no noticeable odor to humans although they have scent glands. Kinkajous also have a broad range of signal calls, from barks and shrill quavering screams to soft chatters. They can live up to 30 years of age.
Kinkajous are fairly large animals and will need a large space. A bird cage is typically not spacious enough unless it is very large. Minimum cage size is at least 20 square feet of floor space.

Kinkajous can be housed together and will benefit greatly from companionship, especially if you are not awake during the night.
