[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
The American mink is a semiaquatic species of mustelid native to North America, though human intervention has expanded its range to many parts of Europe and South America. Because of range expansion, the American mink is classed as a least-concern species by the IUCN. Since the extinction of the sea mink, the American mink is the only extant member of the genus Neovison. The American mink is a carnivore which feeds on rodents, fish, crustaceans, frogs, and birds. In its introduced range in Europe it has been classified as an invasive species linked to declines in European mink, Pyrenean desman, and water vole populations. It is the most frequently farmed animal for its fur, exceeding the silver fox, sable, marten, and skunk in economic importance

Hello Marx,
This is one animal that is not easily captured on film. You have done a terrific job of photographing this particular specimen. From the looks of it's fur it had just recently come out of the water and is still drying out a bit. Great facial features and good eye contact. Love the beautiful rich chocolate color of it's thick fur.
Ron
