American Mink on Lake Ontario, Toronto (February 2016)

The mink is a carnivore. It eats muskrats, rabbits, mice, chipmunks, fish, snakes, frogs and birds. It kills its prey by biting it on the neck. It sometimes stores extra food in its den. The mink digs its den in river banks or it finds a hollow log or an abandoned beaver or muskrat den. It never uses the same den for long.


Happy Canada Day!

One of the best things about Canada is that the country is home to an incredibly immense array of habitats, plants and wildlife. You could make a hundred posts about Canada’s nature, covering everything from the Northwest Territories tundra, to a southern Ontario wetland, to the grasslands of Saskatchewan, to tidal pools in the Maritimes, to west coast rainforests in British Columbia, and you still wouldn’t cover even half of it!

Here’s a selection of Canadian critters I’ve been lucky enough to see over the past few years. Specifics under the cut!

Hope everyone has a great long weekend!
