Weasel family

Banff National Park

There are many weasels that can be found throughout Banff National Park. Weasels generally have elongate bodies, short legs, and glands which produce a strong-smelling scent.


Among the many weasels found in the park is the largest member of the family, the wolverine, which is occasionally seen in the alpine tundra. 

Pine Martens

The smaller pine martens are more common than the other weasels, and are abundant throughout the forested areas of the park. 

Other members of the weasel family found in Banff National Park include the ermine, the long-tailed weasel and the fisher.
