[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.
    Best regards,
    Bill
