We just learned about the American Marten.

Another kind of animal in the same family is the Fisher, also called the pekan, wejak, or pekani pennanti.

The Fisher grows to be about 3 feet long and weigh about 10 pounds.
They have mostly brown fur all over their body.
Even though their name is fisher, these animals mostly hunt on the ground.
They are one of the few animals that will attack a porcupine!
