I went to Fukuchiyama Dam early Sunday morning on September 20 to set up my trail cam on Takatoriyama. I picked it up the following Sunday and here’s what I captured!
Tanuki! A tanuki is a Japanese raccoon dog. So glad to finally get one on camera even if it was just a brief appearance. Leave a comment and tell me where you’ve seen a tanuki in Japanese pop culture.
This furry friend was very interested in the camera. Too close to say what it is. There’s a glimpse of some ears. Maybe a Japanese marten (ten)? What do you think?
I think this is a Japanese badger (anaguma). I could be mistaken, it could be another tanuki. It’s a nice shot anyway.
And this last one, again I don’t know. Look at that long neck and tail. It could be a Japanese marten as well.
Not a lot to show this time, but I’m happy to see the tanuki!
