Kinkajou on petrified wood
The kinkajou (Potos flavus), is a tree-dwelling and night-mammal of the rainforest of Guyana and Amazonia.
Strange animal for the natives, the kinkajou remained for a long time unclassifiable. Having tested severely the elaboration of a scientific naming by the naturalists, he is a biological curiosity among carnivores, by the physiology, and by the behavior.
He is balancing on a petrified wood ball from Indonesia. Elegant work of taxidermy in the spirit of animals show in XIXth century circus .
