Long-tailed weasel and mink occur in Florida but are rarely observed in the wild. Understanding the abundance and distribution of weasel and mink in the state is extremely difficult because this species is small sized, fast moving, and excellent at remaining out of sight. They are often confused with the much larger and more common river otter. FWC is not currently tracking the distribution of river otters. Otter submission are not needed at this time.
