Some of my other favorites are: the genet and the civet. These two look like animals they are not even closely related to.
The genet is so cute and is kept by some people as a pet and as far as I know it's supposed to make a good pet. It's not a cat or a raccoon or anything closely related to that, it's a viverrid.
The civet is also a viverrid. It looks more like a raccoon, but is the similarities are only on the surface.
So there you have it some animals you've probably never heard of or seen before.
