Okay, now I want to get a Japanese Marten. The marble looking one is amazing! I briefly looked once for information on pet martens and found virtually nothing.

I thought martens were much bigger based on the pictures I saw on wikipedia of the american marten. I did want one as a pet at one point,but there's barely any info about them and I didn't think anyone had any as a pet until you posted the link.

Yeah the one on the link was a wild rescue. Interesting read. There was a breeder with a pair of pine marten but they didn't breed so there must be a way to get them or the exotic ones which are a bit cuter.

The photos are deceiving I think. They have a stuffed pine marten at the fish hatchery and it's really small. They all average around 3 pounds or so.

Wiki American pine marten
Adult weight ranges from 1.1 to 3.1 pounds

European pine marten
on average a marten weighs around 1.5 kg (3.5 lb)

Beech marten
Males weigh 1700-1800 grams in winter and 2000-2100 grams in summer, while females weigh 1100-1300 grams in winter and 1400-1500 grams in summer.
(1500g is around 3 pounds)

Japanese marten
1,000 and 1,500 grams (2.2 and 3.3 lb) in weight

I've been interested in Gold Martens for some time but I haven't seen a really viable way to own them. They are freaking adorable though!
