Mustelids in Media

Despite the complexity of mustelids, in Western media their roles are often typecast. Otters are usually portrayed as friendly and playful, badgers short-tempered and/or wise, while all other mustelid species tend to play the antagonist. In the Eastern world and certain regions of Europe, mustelids tend to be given more diverse personalities and roles. When it comes to their appearance, we find big productions commonly give mustelids canid or rodent features, while lesser-known companies will often attempt to capture them with more accuracy.
