Greater mink (American Mink) (semiaquatic; inhabits river banks and lakes, rarely found far from fresh water; very widespread species) (carnivorous; eats small mammals [esp. water vole], birds, amphibians, mollusks, fish, and crabs)
Lesser mink (European mink) (more rare species, being found primarily in only northeastern forests, where the greater mink is absent) (similar diet to greater mink though is a less efficient water hunter; most important food source is vole)
Sea mink (semiaquatic to a far greater degree than the greater mink; lives along eastern coastlines, preferring rocky coasts and off-shore islands) (diet primarily consists of seabirds, eggs, marine invertebrates, insects, and fish)
