The Sulawesi Bear Cuscus spotted in our Resort at Bangka Island

June, 15th 2022

Yesterday we had a rare guest originally from Australia coming to our resort on Bangka. The Sulawesi Bear Cuscus (ailurops ursinus) is the westernmost occurring marsupial. It feeds exclusively on fruits, flowers and leaves and, like a sloth, loves to stay very comfortable in life. But you have to watch out closely to discover it in the high regions of a tree.
