What the heck is a raccoon dog

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raccoon_dog

It looks similar to a raccoon, but is a completely different species.

Do you know Gaara from Naruto? His beast is raccoon dog/tanuki.

Link to wikipedia is good - I've always known it by the name of a Japanese subspecies, Tanuki (e.g. the Tanooki suit, stone statue powerup from Mario Bros 3; Tom Nook from Animal Crossing) (たぬき) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_raccoon_dog). It is common to see a comedic, cartoonish statue of the animal with a hat and exaggerated features outside of Japanese restaurants or temples.

racoon dog is also well known as tanuki if youve played super mario

why is here the translation 'finds the' whereas in a similar one 저는 개구리를 찾습니다 it is 'search for'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mariana3147

찿다 can be used for both search and find. Yes, its weird.

I've been practicing a lot of languages on Duolingo and the sentences they come up with for Korean are so strange.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Calyope3

Yes, it would just casually be there


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kaizenDID

All these sentences with raccoon dogs and I don't even know what kind of animal that is

So it says that I have a typo which is 여우는. However, it supposed to be 여우가. Why is that?
