Daisy is spending some time outside in the warm weather! Daisy and the kinkajous can not handle the cold winters here at the sanctuary so they spend them indoors keeping cozy and warm. You can read more about this in my February blog post. Now, it has warmed up enough here in North Carolina to give Daisy access to the outdoor part of her enclosure during warm days. Here she is seen lounging on one of her platforms, enjoying the sunshine. Daisy was turned over to us by a private owner who never intended to keep her as a pet.
