Are these the animals hanging around the rivers and streams in Korea? Been trying to figure it out for years.

I wonder why they teach us that... Is this raccoon dog so popular there that we have to know this?

It's like learning the word "deer" or "coyote" in English. They're native fauna and they are a part of Korean and Japanese folklore and culture.

Fun fact: The raccoon dog's ability to climb trees is shared only with the North American gray fox.
