This blog will show photographs of my favourite mammals. Species you are likely to see here are those of the mustelid and rodent families. :)

I created this mainly for inspiration and references for art, as animals are my favourite subjects to draw. I will likely post many photos of certain species here to get a good view of their markings and body shape.

None of these photos, unless otherwise stated, were made by me and I do not own any rights to them. If any of these photos are yours and you want me to take them off my blog, please send me a message with a link to said picture.

Clicking on a picture will take you to the picture's source.

Otherwise, enjoy!

A spotted genet that some family friends have been fostering/rehabilitating for a while. 

My friend, Tristan, and myself sat inside their enclosure just watching them run around later in the evening. These guys are absolutely adorable. And to think they’re hunted for “sport”…

I love it when they squint their eyes…it brings out their attitude even more, I think.
Also, the head anatomy is very well pronounced in this photo.

Stoat with an attitude!
