Nee, but he does kind of swallow the is so to me it sounds like Zijn staart slang.

oké, should we report it as not sounding right? I don't want to clutter things up with needless reportings

I don't believe they'll change it. I didn't hear what you heard, but that's probably because Dutch is my native language so I'm used to hearing it. Does it sound that way to you on the regular speed, or on slow pronunciation as well?

Why it can't be 'Its tail is long'?
