Mystery Mustelid in Sichuan
Gillian Whittaker sent me this photo she took on Mt Emei Shan in Sichuan and wondered what species this is. It was quite large – with a HB 25cm or more (so definitely too large to me M. nivalis)
I have never seen Siberian, Mountain or Yellow-bellied Weasels but it doesn’t look much like the pictures I have seen of Siberian Weasels and lacks the black mask. Gillian said it had quite a bit of white under the neck and venter.
Does anyone know what it is?
