Is This A Really Cute Raccoon, Or Is It An Adorable Dog?
Or is it....both?
This is Tanu....he's a Tanuki. Or- Raccoon Dog.
He apparently enjoys belly rubs
The Tanuki actually isn't a raccoon or a dog, but a member of the Canid family, which includes wolves and dogs*.
* don't quote me on this, I'm not a biologist.
Tanu seems fairly sociable, but they don't make great friends due to the fact that they're pretty naughty and don't really understand the concept of not peeing where they want to.
But I dunno, I think I could deal with all of that for this level of cute
Tanuki are taking the internet by storm right now, and are said to have magical powers, such as shape-shifting. In Japanese folklore they are known to be jolly creatures, who are mischievous and absent minded.
Here is a baby Tanuki. You're welcome!
