European polecat (Mustela putorius) — also known as the black or forest polecat - a species of mustelid native to western Eurasia and North Africa. It is of a generally dark brown colour, with a pale underbelly and a dark mask across the face.    Compared to minks and other weasels — also fellow members of the genus Mustela — the polecat has a shorter, more compact body, a more powerfully built skull and dentition, and is less agile.

This is another one from my last trip to the British Wildlife Centre, when the weather was very gloomy. I'm looking forward to going there again on Saturday and hope for better luck this time.
