American Mink at the British Wildlife Centre, Newchapel, Surrey
"The mink is a medium-sized member of the weasel family. The first American mink (Mustela vison) were brought to British fur farms in 1929 and all wild mink in Britain today are descendants of escapees. The natural wild colouring is a glossy dark brown, appearing almost black in some light. Commercial farming selectively bred much paler colours, hence most of those in the wild in Britain are a lighter brown."
