"ringtail" tag needs to be species

In category: Tag Alias and Implication Suggestions

just thought I'd point out that the ringtail tag is referring to the Bassariscus astutus or ring-tailed cat.

This has been brought up before but it is also a slang name for several other creatures. Most commonly Lemurs but also raccoons, Tanukis and indeed anything with a stripy tail.

To specifically link it to one alias would mean breaking all the related muckery too.


ringtail is not a species. its a feature. if anything, it should be disambiguated since there is multiple very different species with the word "ringtail" in their name.

I feel like ring_tailed_cat would make much more sense in this case.
