The Mink


The European mink is generally carnivorous. Its diet is based on the most abundant and available prey at any given time, providing that it is to be found in the water or along the banks. It feeds on water rats, mice and moles, amphibians, fish and crabs in particular.

Minks are a crepuscular and nocturnal species. During the nightime and at twilight, they centre their activity on looking for food and changing their den, whilst their little daytime activity takes place within or close to these shelters.
