Blond Tayras

We need these in the pet trade. Someone needs to make this happen.

Considering the markings I'm wondering if that's one of their subspecies.

not quit as light but the face is also light instead of masked so cool too but not as cool.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tayra

"At least seven subspecies are currently recognized:

Eira barbara barbara (northern Argentina, Paraguay, western Bolivia and central and southern Brazil)
Eira barbara biologiae (central Costa Rica and Panama)
Eira barbara inserta (South Guatemala to central Costa Rica)
Eira barbara madeirensis (west Ecuador and northern Brazil)
Eira barbara peruana (the eastern Andes in Peru and Bolivia)
Eira barbara poliocephala (eastern Venezuela, the Guianas, and northeastern Brazil)
Eira barbara senex (central Mexico to northern Honduras)
Eira barbara senilis (northern Ecuador)
Eira barbara sinuensis (Colombia, western Venezuela, northern Ecuador, and Panama)"

There aren't any pages for any of the subspecies so I assume the blond kind is a subspecies. They look like a Tazmanian devil and a pine marten had babies, haha. Or maybe a smooth coated wolverine.

Found a video of two of them playing:

The regular dark ones are in the pet trade but I think most are imports. You want to ensure it was bottle fed to get a good pet. I thin Chasing tail breeds them now.

Wish they at least had descriptions for the subspecies but I agree it looks more like a subsepcies difference than just a color morph.

Tayras are very cool. I think they'd be interesting pets. :) I prefer the brown ones though, but the blonde ones are super unique looking.

Someone now has a male and female blond in the US. As before it''s not public so I'm probably saying more than I should already but it's great news.

One of the coolest small carnivores.
It's like a cross between a bear and a ferret.
A bearret.
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.
