When you think that a raccoon dog is just a made up animal when you actually realize that it's real and it's in Korea and Japan facepalm

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

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

    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.
