The Mink Frog is a small to medium frog attaining a length of nearly 3 inches. The color on their dorsal surface can be variable, but is generally a green with brown to black mottling. The mottling changes to dark irregular blotches on the upper surfaces of the legs. Like some other species of frogs, the gender of the individual can easily be determined by the size of the tympanum relative to the eye.

Herons As far as plastic herons are concerned, these use the theory that herons are territorial and hence do not fish in pairs. Unfortunately this is not always the case and lets face it if a male heron thinks that your plastic heron is a female then you have just given him the invitation of a lifetime. Seagulls Cats Domestic cats can be a nuisance but are easily scared of by the pond owner. Their claws can also tear the pond liner near the surface, but they normally get bored within a week or two. We have two cats and both of them leave our pond well alone and they also deter other cats from the area. The larger the fish the less likely cats are to be too inquisitive. Mink Warning mink are vicious do not try to touch them The American mink, mustela vision, is a recent introduction to Great Britain, having been released from fur farms into the wild by animal rights protestors during the 1950s. This proved to be a bad move on their part as a great many of the mink where then destroyed by farmers, and the ones that survived devastated local wildlife populations. In recent years these feral populations have been very successful, and the mink is now well established across most of England and Wales. Mink are often first mistaken for otters but although very similar in looks they are much smaller 30-45cm in body length (plus a tail of 13-26cm).

Mink are not native to the British Isles. This alien species, which escaped in to the wild (or in some cases was released) from fur farms, is thought to have had a serious effect on the population of native water voles . It originated from North America. (The European mink, Lutreola lutreola , is now confined to a few parts of northern Scandinavia, having been driven out of most of its original range, probably by a combination of persecution and habitat loss. Mink can be very dangerous if they are cornered. If you are bitten by a mink it is important to obtain medical treatment immediately, since some mink may be carriers of Wiels Disease.

Mink as environmental indicators During the early 1970's, several domestic mink ranchers reported that their animals were sick and producing very few young. Researchers eventually tied these symptoms to high concentrations of methyl mercury. Methyl mercury is a by-product of mercury, which is found naturally at low levels in the environment, but acts like a poison in higher doses. Fish captured in the Great Lakes region and used to feed the mink were a common link among ranches with this problem. The fish had been contaminated with high levels of mercury through a process known as bio-accumulation.
Bio-accumulation occurs when small amounts of a compound are stored and passed through the food chain, reaching higher levels with each step. For example, mercury levels found in water might be higher than normal because of pollution, but still safe by human standards. Small fish take in some of the mercury with their food and store it in their tissues. Levels found in the fish are higher than the water itself, but not enough to kill them or make them sick. A medium-sized fish eats many of the small fish during its lifetime, building a higher concentration of mercury in its system. As a large fish eats many of the medium-sized fish, it accumulates some the mercury each had stored in its tissues, building it to a yet higher level.
While the fish showed no outward signs of sickness, the mink that ate them were particularly sensitive to mercury and developed severe symptoms. The problem stopped once the source of mercury was identified and ranchers switched to other sources of food. While unfortunate, this incident provided many valuable lessons. For example, later testing led to human health advisories which warned people to limit their consumption of fish caught in Lake Michigan. The warnings asked people to avoid eating fish altogether if they were in a high risk group (like pregnant women). People in lower risk categories were asked to eat only small amounts of large fish, especially those species prone to accumulate contaminants.

Scientific Name
Mustela vison
Description Like most members of the weasel family, the mink has a long, slender body and short legs. The tail is about two-fifths as long as the body. Adult males are longer (21-24 inches) and heavier (2-3 3/4 pounds) than adult females (16 3/4-21 inches; 1 1/4-1 3/4 pounds). Most wild mink are dark brown except for a white chin and a tail that's tipped with black. Some have one or more irregular white patches on their throats or chests. A mink's ears are short, barely extending above its fur.
Domestic mink have been bred selectively for many generations to attain a larger size and wider variety of colors than their wild cousins. Trade names like standard, demi-buff, pearl, sapphire, and gunmetal refer to color strains ranging from jet black to pure white and bluish-gray. Domestic mink occasionally escape into the wild, but few survive. Mink are found in every county in Illinois. They're most abundant in the glacial lakes area of
northeastern Illinois, counties bordering the lower Mississippi River, and the southern third of the state. While they still are common, wild mink are less abundant than they were 50-100 years ago because of habitat loss caused by development, stream channelization, and drainage of wetlands.
Habitat Mink live along rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, and marshes. Shorelines with grass, brush, trees, or aquatic vegetation like cattails provide good cover and abundant prey. Abandoned burrows dug by muskrats are their favorite places to rest and raise young, but they will use cavities in brush or rock piles, logjams, and the exposed roots of trees. A den can have several entrances, and includes a nest chamber about 1 foot in diameter that is sometimes lined with grass, leaves, fur, or feathers.

More information from this division: Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources Bureau of Wildlife The Mink Description Distribution and Habitat Behavior Mortality Factors ... Management
Mink ( Mustela vison ) have a long, thin body and neck, short legs, and a 6-8 inch bushy tail. Male mink generally are larger than females and may exceed two feet in length. The fur is dark brown on the back, blending into a slightly lighter shade on the belly. A distinguishing mink characteristic is the small white patch of fur on the chin of all animals. Mink fur is very soft and lustrous. The dense underfur is protected by oily guard hairs that tend to waterproof the coat. Like other members of the weasel family, such as weasels and skunks, mink possess a pair of anal scent glands. The liquid in these glands has a strong smell and probably is used for communication or defense purposes.
Distribution and Habitat:
Mink are distributed throughout all of New York State and most of the United States and Canada. They occupy a wide variety of wetland habitat types including streams, rivers, lakes, freshwater and saltwater marshes and coastlines. Their population levels are generally higher in those areas of New York with an abundance of these habitat types. Also, as part of this study, wildlife biologists and technicians surveyed streams in central and western New York to determine the presence of mink. Mink tracks were more abundant in the Southern Tier of New York than in the Lake Plains. The reason for this is uncertain and needs further study.

We assessed chlorinated hydrocarbon contamination of mink and river otters on the Columbia and Fraser River systems of northwestern North America, in relation to morphological measures of condition. We obtained carcasses of mink and river otters from commercial trappers during the winters 1994-1995 and 1995-1996. Necropsies included evaluation of the following biological parameters: sex, body mass and length, age, thymus, heart, liver, lung, spleen, pancreas, kidney, gonad, omentum, adrenal gland and baculum masses, baculum length, and stomach contents. Livers were analyzed, individually or in pools, for residues of organochlorine (OC) pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dibenzo- p -dioxins, and dibenzofurans. Contaminant levels were relatively low compared to those documented in other North American populations, although they ranged higher than those detected during an earlier survey (1990-1992) of these regional populations. Body condition varied slightly among collection regions, but showed no relationship with contaminant burden. Mink from the upper Fraser River had less fat stores and also had some of the lowest OC contamination levels observed. Similarly, a few individuals with enlarged livers and kidneys had low contaminant levels. Although a few individual animals with gross abnormalities of reproductive systems did not show high levels of contamination, there was a significant negative correlation between total PCB concentrations (as Aroclor 1260) and baculum length in juvenile mink (

Other Wildlife in the Hebrides
There are plenty other animals to see in the Hebrides apart from marine and bird life; watch out for friendly Highland Cows, and the islands' worst road users - the sheep!! In common with many other island groups there are fewer types of mammals present than in similar habitats on the mainland (and no snakes apart from grass snakes!) Due to our isolation there are a number of sub species that are unique to the islands. Here's a quick run down of some of the other animals you are likely to see in the Hebrides... Otters The Minch has one of the densest otter populations in North West Europe and as one of the last otter strongholds, you are more likely to spot one of these agile swimmers in the Hebrides than anywhere else. Reaching up to four feet in length, they are fast and fluid in and out of water. Although extremely shy, you are quite likely to view these animals if you have patience and are good at keeping quiet. They like rocks, beaches and seaweed-strewn shores; you can also see them around sea lochs on the east coast of the islands where they hunt for fish.

Wild For Mink in South Carolina
By Lisa M. Collins
A Plan for Restoration
The state wildlife department is planning to do something about that. A program just now getting off the ground will reintroduce the mink to Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, a sanctuary near Charleston. After an outflux of birds and other wildlife from the sanctuary in the 1970s due to pollution, pelicans, Ospreys and other sea birds have returned recently, explained Buddy Baker of the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. The theory is that the return of the sea birds is an indication that the water might be clean enough to support minks again.
Buddy Baker and a graduate student from Clemson University have worked for three months to refine capture techniques around the wetlands off of Hilton Head Island (one of the southernmost parts of South Carolina, near the Georgia border). The mink are abundant in this area, and easily spotted at night during high tides. Since April, 13 minks have been captured with shrimp and crab nets and transported 25 miles north to the wildlife sanctuary.
