Bush Dog: Speothos venaticus

bush dog Speothos venaticus

"It is one of the most unusual looking dogs, as they look like weasels or otters. This is probably due to the fact that they spend a lot of time in and around the water. Its coloration is a reddish brown with a darker brown tail and often has a lighter patch under its throat. It has small round ears, a short tail, short legs, and a rounded skull with a short muzzle. Their feet are webbed."
