Pine marten, Martes martes L.
[Strictly speaking, #27 should be the Nilgiri marten, M. gwatkinsii, but I can't find any images.]
Thank you for providing the Monday Mustelid.
I had no idea what "mustelids" were before reading your blog. Yeah, I know a weasel when I see one, Casey Luskin of the Discovery Institute, for example, but I was unfamiliar with the diversity of this group.
I find them strangely attractive, Casey excluded, and their social behavior is fascinating. Thanks to your blog I am learning more about this group of animals.
I *still* want a marten! Anyone wanna trade a cat for a marten?
