Wise County sheriff's deputies put a mysterious animal behind bars this week.

They believe it's a kinkajou, which is part of the raccoon family.

It's name means "honey bear," but deputies say the kinkajou was anything but sweet. The animal got into a house over the weekend and bit a deputy.

That story got Ron and Izzy talking about Ron's previous run in with a kinkajou, while he was working for a FOX station and interviewing Busch Gardens staffers about exotic animals.

While Ron was trying to talk about an armadillo, the kinkajou decided it was his chance to earn his viral video fame. Take a look!
