Hello

Have a Tibetan friend of mine that gre up in exile in India and when she was young she had a wild pet that she never knew what animal it was. Anyways that was long ago but she has a photo of her with it when she was young and wants to know what animal it is. Does anyone here recognize this animal if so what is the animals name?

TIA

The animal in pictures looks like a raccoon. Raccoons are not normally found in India, probably the child must have got it along from Tibet.

No was definitely something she got in India and we know it isn't a coon unless it is a different variety of coon as it has a slightly though similar look to a cool. My thinking was something in the possum family or somewhere along those lines but unsure.
