Species: tanuki

The raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides), also known as the magnut or tanuki, is a canid (Canidae) indigenous to East Asia and Japan while introduced population live in Eastern Europe.

In Japan, they have a folkloric significance and are often popular as statues. Males are depicted as having large balls.

They are not related to either badgers or raccoon, both of which they are often mistaken for by the West.

Technically, tanuki only refers to the Japanese variant of the animal, but is used here on e621 for all varieties of raccoon dogs due to the tanuki being better recognized in the West and to reduce confusion with raccoons.
