Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

תַּן or תָּן only in plur. תַּנִּים and תַּנִּין m. a certain beast dwelling in deserts, Isaiah 13:22, 43:20 34:13 (whence מְקוֹם תַּנִּים Psalms 44:20 and מְעוֹן תַּנִּים Jerem. 9:10 10:22 49:33, used of the desert); it suckles its young, Lamentations 4:3 and utters a mournful cry, Job 30:29; Micah 1:8. Bochart (Hieroz. ii. p. 429) takes it to be great serpents, as if it were the same as תַּנִין, but amongst the Hebrews, R. Tanchum of Jerusalem correctly explains this word ابن اوى jackal, wild dog, so called from its cry (elsewhere Hebr. אִי plur. אִיִּים), compare Arab. تنَانُ wolf, both from the root תָּנַן No. 2.
