We define a new quasiregular mapping $T:\mathbb {R}^3\to \mathbb {R}^3 \cup \{\infty \}$ that generalizes the tangent function on the complex plane and shares a number of its geometric properties. We investigate the dynamics of the family $\{\lambda T:\lambda >0\}$, establishing results analogous to those of Devaney and Keen for the meromorphic family $\{z\mapsto \lambda \tan z:\lambda >0\}$, although the methods used are necessarily original.
