Siberian weasel, Mustela siberica Pallas 1773

There are no good available photos for the Malayan weasel (M. nudipes), the Black-striped weasel (M. strigidorsa) and the Egyptian weasel (M. subpalmata), so that’s all you are getting on them. That means that next week’s Monday Mustelid will be the last one in the series.

Long-tailed weasel, Mustela frenata Lichtenstein 1831


I was unable to find a good picture of Mustela felipei (Izor and de la Torre, 1978) so that, alas, will be left by the wayside.

Steppe Polecat, Mustela eversmanni Lesson 1827.

I spent three years of my life measuring mustelid skulls. I kind of miss it.

Monday Mustelid (bonus)

On Monday, we’ll begin the final lap of the Monday Mustelid, namely the 18 members of the genus Mustela. So it seems apt to post what is probably the most famous image of a mustelid, Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Lady with the Ermine” (1482-’83). You can read more about the portrait here.

This is by way of pointing out that there are a number of the remaining species that I am unable to find a good picture of. So this will be the sole mention of M. africana Desmarest, 1818 which would have been our Monday Mustelid next week.
