Photo: Tanukis in Atlanta

Tanukis (also known as the raccoon dog) is a species native to Asia that inspired the Tanooki suit in the Super Mario games by Nintendo. They were a little hard to see at Zoo Atlanta but I got a decent look. They're more related to dogs than raccoons. They weren't very active though.

  5. Never heard of them, but I expect there are many animals that I've never heard of.
