They look more like ferrets to me.
Ferrets can be found in the wild. They can't compete with polecats and would be extincted if there wouldn't be repeated escapes from captivity.
The albino ferret is easy to identify. The non albinos one differ slightly from the polecat by its size and color.


I don't know what they are, but it's a great shot.
Composition and subject are excellent.


olá que bonitos montes de pelo!!!
É uma foto muito ternurenta! Gostei das cores e dos detalhes! bjs Ana:)

Belle photo de ces trois petits qui sont de fort jolies couleurs, je suppose que une est la maman, mais leurs taille n' est pas fort différentes .Amitiés Thomas
Je reviens.
