Before I start let me say up front that I am not saying I want to go get one as a pet, or that I condone the whole wild-animal-as-a-pet thing. What I’m talking about is… say you found an injured baby one and raised it and nursed it back to health. Would it domesticate? It’s a member of the weasel family, and ferrets have been very successfully domesticated. However I’ve heard that mink, also in the weasel family, don’t do well as pets because they are aggressive, (I don’t know if it is true or not.) I’ve read that lions tame well, and tigers do not. Etc. So I was just wondering if anyone knows about the temperament of the pine marten and how it does in captivity.
Am I the only one who thinks that they’re obscenely cute?
