About This Group

#For otters, meerkats and all creatures from the Mustelidae and Herpestidae families.

Mustelidae:

  1. Otters
  2. Badgers
  3. Wolverines (the animals not the superheroes!)
  4. Grisons
  5. Polecats
  6. Martens and all from the martes family
  7. Stoat (Ermine),
  8. Weasel
  9. Mink
  10. Ferret
  11. Honey Badger (Ratel)

Herpestidae:

  1. Moongoose
  2. Kusimanse(s?)
  3. Meerkat,

Why together?

As Wikipedia say:

“The mongoose has a similar appearance to the weasel, despite not being closely related. Their long sleek bodies and short fur fit them for similar ecological niches. They live in similar climates and both burrow underground. Like weasels, mongooses have short legs and tails.”

And because… well…. if these otters are not trying to be meerkats, I have no idea what they are up to!
