What's your favorite weasel-like family?

The option for the Civet/Genet family includes all species and subspecies of civet and genet plus linsangs,but not larger members of the family such as Binturong.

The option for the weasel family is mostly for small typical weasel species like least weasels, stoat,martens,minks, polecats, ferrets,ferret-badgers,etc. more so than for large weasel family members such as tayra, wolverine,otters, other types of badgers,etc.

The option for the mongoose family incudes all true and false mongoose species and subspecies,which includes meerkats.

The option for the marsupials include any weasel-like marsupials such as Little Water Possums and Quolls and sort of Numbats,etc.

The raccoon family option includes ringtail cats and cacomistles.
Exotic Wishlist: high content wolfdog or wolf,low to mid content wolfdog, Coyote, Coydog, Black-backed Jackal, New Guinea Singing Dog, Red Fox, Gray Fox, Mink, Raccoon, Coati,and Kinkajou.

Domestic Wishlist: dogs, cats, ferrets, donkey, mule

Mongooses, hands down. I assume you included Malagasy carnivores in the family as "false mongooses," but this would be true even if you didn't include them.

For one thing, I don't think any of the other families other than the mongoose family (and some of the Malagasy carnivores) include social animals.

For another thing, even if they did, social carnivores usually have limits on which members are allowed to breed. The banded mongooses allow all members to breed, which makes it really unusual among carnivores.

For a third thing, the mongoose family includes meerkats, meerkats, Suricata suricatta, and meerkats. Oh, and it also includes meerkats.
