If two animals with such different looks can both be targs, I don't see why the Trek III critter can't as well.
Are pigs and dogs the same species, or are they simply both mammals?
No, they are different.
However, this is irrelevant to the point that I am making.
And my point is that we can't say that Kruge's pet wasn't a targ simply on the basis that it didn't look like the other targs that we saw.
It's like saying Porthos couldn't be a dog because he doesn't look like Lassie.
