Mink

 

So unexpected was yesterday’s sighting of a mink that I initially guessed¬†it was a particularly¬†small otter. Small indeed. While the otter and the mink are both semiaquatic members of the same weasel family (mustelidae), the otter is about eight times the weight of the mink.

    Exciting! I was unaware that we had mink around here. I’m used to seeing them along the coast, where they are abundant.
