Bearcats belong to which taxon family?

Viverridae

Explanation

In spite of the name, Bearcats (Arctictis binturong) are not cats. They are members of the taxon family Viverridae from Southeast Asia. They look a bit like buffed up ferrets.

Cats are all members of the taxon family Felidae. Both Viverridae and Felidae are members of the suborder Feliformia, which is a member of the order Carnivora.
