Stephen Maturin's selfsame ____?

In one of the Aubrey/Maturin books by Patrick O'Brian, Stephen Maturin brings an animal aboard the ship of the moment. Said animal is called something unusual, so it's not the famous debauched sloth, nor is it one of the wombats he brings on in another book. It's cute, though. And I think it may pine away and come to a sad end. Does anyone remember what the creature is? It's driving me batty. Thank you!
