Raccoon Dog

Collection of scaled drawings of Raccoon Dog in various poses

The Raccoon Dog (Nyctereutes procyonides) is a species of the Canidae family, closely related to foxes, that was named after its resemblance to the face of a raccoon. They have short tan-black limbs, a large body, and rounded ears. They are native to East Asia and can be found all throughout Europe, Russia, China, Estonia, and Japan. The Raccoon dog has an omnivorous diet that consists of insects, rodents, amphibians, birds, fish, reptiles, mollusks, fruits, and nuts. They are the only member of the canid family that hibernates in the winter.
