Burmese Ferret Badger, Melogale personata Saint-Hillaire 1831


Chinese Ferret Badger, Melogale moschata Gray 1831

There are two further putative species of ferret badger for which I’m unable to find suitable images: Everett’s ferret badger (Melogale everetti Thomas 1895) and the Javan ferret badger (Melogale orientalis Horsfield 1821). The genus is in need of a good taxonomic study.
