Episode Information

To many ears the name mustelid might sound mysterious and confusing. They may sound strange, but this family of hunters are probably much more familiar than you think. They’re tiny terrors; ankle-height tigers of the undergrowth. From the icy northern climbs where the bold wolverine quietly rules the forests, scattering wolves with a fearsome glance, to the sun-drenched wetlands of the Amazon where man-sized giant otters work together to protect their families and defend their homes. Not forgetting the humble badger, with their notorious reputation for being grumpy and confrontational even their fearsome bear neighbours give them a wide berth. There’s no doubt that pound for pound these are among the fiercest and boldest predators on Earth. Uncover some of the secrets of these amazing animals as we meet the mustelids!
