Kinkajou/Olingo ID Ecuador
Kinkajou or Olingo is apparently the classic conundrum of tropical South America. A kind person on Facebook told me that most of those are likely Kinkajou, but that someone knowledgeable could find an Olingo or two in there. To me, this is a complete mystery – I can tell that the one that holds the branch with the tail must be Kinkajou, but some of the others really look to me like they could be both!
This is the last thing that holds me back in making a trip report from a rather unusual Ecuador trip, so any ID suggestions you make are actually for your own good, because it’s gonna be a cracking read 🙂 All images are taken in places where both Kinkajou and some species of Olingo occur (Panacocha, Sumaco and Mindo).
