Subspecies[edit]

Does anyone know how to put the subspecies names in each column instead of stuck together in one paragraph? Cynops 16:03, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Enfield Road[edit]

I removed this line: "They are often seen on Enfield Road in Austin, Texas." Seems like original research —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.53.163.211 (talk) 16:51, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Don't know about Enfield Road, but if they're seen around Yellowstone National Park, wouldn't that mean that their range includes Wyoming (thus the earlier statement is incomplete)... jmdeur 21:30 7 May 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.148.60.151 (talk)

Does it live in groups?[edit]

Does it live in groups like a colony? This should be added to the article. --AveMaria02 (talk) 05:30, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Ubuntu 13.04 mascot[edit]

Someone should mention that this animal was chosen as the mascot for Ubuntu 13.04 'Raring Ringtail', as letter R was in queue. Prooflink (Shuttleworth's blog) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.242.183.33 (talk) 18:54, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Such a statement belongs in the software article, not the animal article. Feel free to link to here from there if the reader is curious.WTucker (talk) 02:06, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Smaller than a housecat?[edit]

really? doesn't look smaller than the average housecat to me. also, the avg housecat won't take on much aside from a mouse or small bird while this thing supposedly eats rats and similar size prey. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.204.186.92 (talk) 17:08, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

^ Most animals of this size/body plan can & do kill prey larger than themselves, look at most Mustelids.

{{subst:Rm|Ringtail|current2=Ringtail|new2=Ringtail (disambiguation)|reason=This is the only species known by the name "ringtail" alone; other topics by this name are either hyphenated or already disambiguated and clearly not the [[WP:PRIMARYTOPIC], which this one seems to be; and the present name is a misleading folk name, like "horny toad" for the horned lizard or referring to apes as "monkeys".}}
