Content Policy


In order to maintain our identity of Genuine Mustelids and differ ourselves from Wikipedia, it is not in our interest to mention every mustelid character that has appeared in media. To the best of our knowledge, we only present content from productions that have depicted them reasonably well in games and animation. In regard to literary fiction, we only mention published content that has a mustelid as the protagonist, antagonist or deuteragonist; to make your potential read of these creative works worthwhile.

We will also never include intrusive advertisements, pop-ups or autoplay videos on this website.

Media links

This site uses non-commercial copyrighted material not own by Genuine Mustelids, which prevents us from linking directly to online retail or customer-to-customer sales. For this reason, all links in Mustelids in Media are directed to Wikipedia, or the Internet Movie Database (IMDb); provided they are listed on these sites.

Our ‘Family of Mustelids’ pages

Due to there being so much confusion about what mustelids are, it is extremely difficult to explain their essence without… well, making things more complicated. We would prefer to be more scientifically accurate by categorizing mustelids by subfamily, but few readers would know what those subfamilies are, or which species are among them. To try and make things less confusing, if two or more species share a well-known common name, they will be placed within the same page.

One of our more difficult tasks is finding correct, up-to-date information about rare mustelids. Since we are not zoologists and do not have the liberty to personally study these creatures, most information we use comes from other reliable sources. Even then this information is subject to change, as zoologists and conservationists discover more about these animals. What was true about a certain species as little as five years ago, may or may not be the case today. Due to the complexity of the family Mustelidae, there’s also a lot of general misinformation out there. Combining information from multiple sources (especially those which are native and frequently updated), and finding similarities in their results is how we go about being as accurate as possible.
