Kinkajous live in the canopy layer of the rainforest of Central and South America. Kinkajous have thick golden brown fur. They are exposed to predators during the hours before dawn. If the rainforest becomes mixed woodlands, they will be easier for predators to spot. They have bad eyesight so they can't see predators coming. The adaptation that I am going to give the kinkajou is darker colored fur. Instead of golden fur it will change to a mix of burnt sienna, raw sienna, dark brown and other browns. This would help them blend in with the trees around them. According to San Diego zoo.org, ”If they are not well concealed by this time, a predator might surprise them during sleep.” Their predators will find it harder to eat them if they blend in with the surroundings.
