Note: There will be 2 uncommon kanji below, 浣熊 and 河馬. These two kanjis are for the Racoon and Hippo, respectively. In most references friend would find them being created in katakana, アライグマ(Araiguma) and カバ(kaba) and also that is the an ext natural way.

However we voted to keep the kanji since it’s a small bit funny. 浣熊 – アライグマ(Araiguma) literally analyze to “washing bear” and also 河馬 – カバ(kaba) equates to “river horse”. We also find this interesting since the literal translation is the exact same in Deutsch.

If i were allowed, my personal recommendation because that the picture would be to compose these in katakana.アライグマカバUsually plenty of Japanese people do not usage kanji for these 2, but katakana instead.

All the remainder of the pets are just perfect as it is, give thanks to you!

Hi Nao,

Thank you for your lovely comment, we are an extremely delighted come hear that.We witnessed that アライグマ and also カバ was created in katakana in most references, we supplied kanji since we believed it’s a little funny.Like the 浣熊 would certainly be “washing bear” and 河馬 would be the “river horse”. We uncover it very interesting because in Deutsch the definition would it is in the same. Thank you so much for sharing this information
