Elderly woman gets unwelcome companion in her bed

MIAMI, FL (NBC)- An elderly Florida woman woke up to a surprise Tuesday night.

Kinkajous normally live in the rain forests of central and South America, but Tuesday one decided to snuggle up on the woman’s chest while she was sleeping at her home.

“I was awakened by a phone call at 2 o’clock in the morning, which is never good news. And it was from my terrified mother-in-law,” Carlos Aguaras said.

This particular kinkajou is named Banana. Aguaras took Banana to an area veterinarian until the exotic pet’s owner could be tracked down. The two have since been reunited.
