Tilley is a kinkajou. They are related to olingos, coatis, raccoons, and the ringtail and cacomistle. Native to Central America and South America, this mostly frugivorous, is seldom seen by people because of its strict nocturnal habits. However, they are hunted for the pet trade, for their fur (to make wallets and horse saddles) and for their meat. The species has been included in Appendix III of CITES by Honduras, which means that exports from Honduras require an export permit and exports from other countries require a certificate of origin or re-export. They may live up to 40 years in captivity.
