  1. Mustelidae

    The Mustelidae, are a family of carnivorous mammals, commonly referred to as the weasel family. Mustelids are diverse and the largest family in the order Carnivora. The internal classification still seems to be rather unsettled, with rival proposals containing between two and eight subfamilies. One study published in 2008 questions the long-accepted Mustelinae subfamily, and suggests the Mustelidae consist of four major clades and three much smaller lineages.
