In addition to weasels, relatives include minks, otters, badgers, and ferrets. In fact, the common pet ferret is believed to be the domesticated form of one or more type of polecat. Polecats have long slender bodies with short legs, claws, and a tail. Their bodies are so flexible they can turn around in tight spaces such as narrow underground burrows. Some polecats live in burrows they've dug for themselves. Others live in burrows they find. There are several species of polecats. One type, the European polecat, lives in parts of Europe. The marbled polecat and steppe polecat lives in

Europe and Asia. Another polecat, the striped polecat, lives in Africa. All polecats are carnivores, or meat-eaters. They are solitary animals, and are most active at night. However, polecats do occasionally hunt during the day, as well. Using their great sense of smell they feed on many kinds of small prey including rodents, rabbits, snakes, lizards, amphibians, fish, birds and eggs. When prey is hard to find polecats will eat insects and fruit. The name polecat comes from the French word poule-chat, meaning chicken cat, or killer of chickens. And for years farmers hunted them for just this reason. They were also hunted for their fur. Today, however, more people are coming to realize that polecats are a valuable predator that help keep rat, mice, and rabbit populations under control. Polecats are well known for their ability to excrete a foul smell to mark territory and to ward off predators. Some people refer to skunks as polecats. While both can be quite smelly, skunks aren't true polecats.
