Monday Mustelid #15 (and #16!)

Melogale-personata01

Burmese Ferret Badger, Melogale personata Saint-Hillaire 1831

mmoschata

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.

    Okay, now my kid is in heaven. He no longer has to choose between ferrets and badgers for his favorite animal.
