Looks like a koatamundi - it should have had a ringed tail...

First thing I thought too, was a koatamundi.
Is the tail missing?

I am of the opinion that this is definitely a koatamundi. It has this typical coat color and I think the snout also indicates that it is a koatamundi. Where did you take that picture? I think the animal on the picture looks really cute. Would love to see such an animal in the wild.
