What Am I? by linawifeofL What Am I? by linawifeofL
Found this poor guy at an antique shop. I think a dog got to him, he's all torn open and a set of his feet were missing, another barely hanging on. It's a shame because I can tell that once upon a time he was very good looking! Anyway, before I work with/trade/sell him, I need to know just what he is! He's pretty rough, mostly grizzled grey with a brown undercoat with dark brown parts. The dark brown on his head has a few tan patches. I was thinking wolverine or badger, but really I'm shooting in the dark. Does anyone know what this guy is?

EDIT: Okay I AM SO DUMB after remembering what different furs look like I'm pretty sure this comes from a tanuki. But if anyone else is pretty certain of it being something else, feel free to tell.

it may be a mink... antique shops love to sell the 'vintage' pelts

It doesn't feel like it nor have the coloration, so I don't think so

It could really be anything... but I'm gonna say, the lighter looks like coyote and the darker... a skunk? Idk I'm thinking it's a hybrid of a couple diff pelts... then again the honey badger theory... haha

Honestly, it looks like a very LONG pelt. One of the easiest ways to tell what animal it's from (if you can't tell by the fur or face) is by the anatomy/proportions. Maybe if you posted a shot of it flat longways would make it easier to tell by the proportions of it. I agree that it's probably a tanuki since they look very similar to foxes but have a significantly longer torso (as your pelt appears to have), but again it'd be easier to tell for sure if you had a full on body shot of it laying flat.

The thing is it isn't a pelt. It's a stole. It's been made of part of a pelt/pelts, so there is no anatomy to judge from.

If its fairly coarse (compared to Fox) it could be European badger... They have that coloration. Black Belly with Lighter Back.
