The internet is totally freaking out these days about a cute animal called raccoon dog. You can find this animal mainly in Japan and it’s not related to the raccoons we all know, it’s actually totally different and it just looks a lot like one of them.
There’s a tanuki (the Japanese name of raccoon dogs) who went massively viral in Japan earlier this month, as some pictures of him warming himself next to a little stove were retweeted over 10,000 times.

This is a raccoon dog (or tanuki), most of people mistaken this animal for a classic raccoon, but it actually has nothing to do with it.

He totally loves it. In winter tanukis use to hibernate, so you can find him sleeping next to his stove most of the time.
