I saw it on the page for the zoo in Russia I am trying to get an internship at, but I don't know Russian yet, so I'm not sure. I suppose I could look it up, but I was wondering if anyone had seen it before? icon-smile It looks really cool/cute. Hah.

Oh, I guess it's just a dhole. But it's extra fluffy because it's in Russia? :shrug: Anyways, I think it's really pretty. icon-smile

I didn't either. It's so neat-looking. It looks like a completely different species.

Good luck getting the internship! That would be great if you could.

It's a Siberian dhole(Cuon alpinus alpinus), the nominate(main) subspecies. The short-furred ones you are thinking of are probably the Indian dholes(Cuon alpinus dukhunensis) which get more attention thanks to Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book,despite not being the main subspecies. Chinese dholes(Cuon alpinus lepturus) are also very fluffy. Some sources list the Siberian and Chinese dholes as the same subspecies as their has been alot of reclassifcation and subspecies merging in dholes,just like in Gray Wolves.
