Loving lesser known animals has its downsides- one of the worst being the lack of items you can buy to show your appreciation. In theory I could satisfy this need by making my own designs, but there's something psychologically satisfying about buying stuff from other sources- it adds diversity to your collection, and can make you feel more connected to the world.

Thanks to modern day technology, it's never been easier to find what you're looking for. It's still hard to find anything when your interests aren't commonplace, and even more if you're picky, like me. I'm always hoping there's someone out there who will take the plunge, as internet makes it possible to promote interest without worrying about competition and whether or not it will sell well. I was positively baffled when I came across an artist like this- one who not only creates their own designs, but who's knowledgeable enough to show a vast variety from the African palm civet to wolves and even lists the subspecies! In addition, mustelids are one of her specialities.
It makes me happy just to visit an online store like this, and viewing a wealth of favourite animal products in one place.

About Us

"Mustelidae (from Latin mustela, weasel), commonly referred to as the weasel family, are a family of carnivorous mammals.

The Mustelidae in general are phylogenetically relatively primitive and so were difficult to classify until genetic evidence started to become available. The increasing availability of such evidence may well result in some members of the family being moved to their own separate families, as has already happened with the skunks, previously considered to be members of the mustelid family.

Mustelids vary greatly in size and behavior. The least weasel is not much larger than a mouse. At the other end of the scale, giant otter can measure up to 2.4 metres (7.9 ft) in total length and sea otters can exceed 45 kilograms (99 lb). The wolverine can crush bones as thick as the femur of a moose to get at the marrow, and has been seen attempting to drive bears away from its kill. The sea otter uses rocks to break open shellfish to eat. The marten is largely arboreal, while the badger digs extensive networks of tunnels, called setts. Some mustelids have been domesticated. The ferret and the tayra are kept as pets (although the tayra requires a Dangerous Wild Animals licence in the UK), or as working animals for hunting or vermin control. Others have been important in the fur trade. The mink is often raised for its fur.

As well as the most species-rich family in the order Carnivora, mustelidae is one of the oldest. Mustelid-like forms first appeared about 40 million years ago in the Oligocene epoch, roughly coinciding with the appearance of rodents. The direct ancestors of the modern mustelids first appeared about 15 million years ago.

-Edited excerpt from Wikipedia

Mustelids include weasels, otters, minks, martens, wolverines, polecats, ferrets, grisons, and badgers. Skunks were somewhat recently removed from the family Mustelidae, but are acceptable in submissions.
