February 2019: Pine Marten

Pine Marten (Martes martes)

FaunaFocus is entering February 2019 and featuring a new small mammal, the pine marten! This omnivorous and arboreal creature is native to the Eurasian area and has many physical attributions that help it climb trees, such as a long tail, powerful forearms, and acrobatic abilities. This nocturnal animal is listed as “Least Concern” on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
