A small, predatory, weasel-like mammal. It is also semi-aquatic.

Minks are tiny creatures who can be found in temperate lakes and rivers. They are solitary, appearing only one at a time. They're benign and only marginally larger than the average kitten, making them entirely harmless. A newborn mink is called a mink kit.

Minks can be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets. Their tiny size means they can't be butchered if hunted, and slaughtered tame ones will only give a skull in return.

Some dwarves like minks for their long bodies.

Admired for their long bodies.
