Carrying on our family tree of the lovely ferret, this week we’re looking at some more subfamilies on the mustelidae side of things.

This week we’ll look at the family mustelidae, particularly at the genus mustela.
Now mustela actually means weasel and for a lot of other countries outside the United Kingdom, the term weasel is actually an overarching term for anything of our little ferrity weasily type animal.
