Man, going to Mt. Hope would be an awesome birthday present...I would love to get an animal from there, or at least go see them to get an idea of prices and what's available for the future.

no clue what kind of oppossums, they looked like the normal ones u see in the wild- ugly, lol. Sorry never done any sort of oppossum research.
& yes the polecats are supposedly European- if they are even polecats. They look like ferrets to me but we shall see

Ferrets were domesticated from European pole cats so they would look the same.

I was hoping they would have been marbled polecats. I'm on the look-out for those at the moment. :)

Thanks!

Over here EU polecats cost more then ferrets. Ferrets are normally free but EU polecats are £60 each and angora's are £75+ (angora's are fluffy ferrets).

The only difference between EU polecats and ferrets here is that EU polecats have chocolate coloured noses and markings where as a polecat coloured ferret will have a pink or black nose and black/grey markings.

I say "here" as some things may be names different things on the different sides of the Atlantic.

Do you get Angora's over there?

I will try to get some pics from the forums over here of the colourations I am talking about.

EDIT: Here we go.

No I've heard of people wanting to get the angoras and not being able to. I don't know why.

I will take one of each! Or maybe just the polecat. CUTE.

And in response to Eeyor216, I'm assuming they were just Virginia Opossums then. They're on my wishlist for someday.

You guys are so lucky. We don't have anything like this down south that I'm aware of. :/

@Elina:
The polecats I've seen look like ferrets only larger and chubbier:

But those are all the Common Polecat which is native througout Europe. The polecat you posted looks like the Welsh polecat,which is a subspecies that is apparently only native to England and Wales and doesn't resemble the domestic ferret quite as much:

Image

I didn't realize that polecats could look different enough from ferrets where they don't almost look like the same species,but this Welsh polecat is so adorable,almost more adorable than ferrets. Now, it makes me want to add a European Polecat unto my wishlist along with Marbled Polecats. I never had them on my wishlist before because I thought they all looked too much like ferrets and that it would be too much trouble to try and find a rare animal that basically looked and acted in the same way(or almost the same way) as the common domestic ferret.

I also love this guy who is apparently another color morph of the Welsh Polecat:
