What is the animal Shirokorot known for?

Shirokorot is a Russian word that means "wide-short" or "broad-snout".
It is a nickname for a type of animal that belongs to the family of Mustelidae, which includes weasels, otters, badgers, and wolverines.
Shirokorot is also known as the European mink, or Mustela lutreola.

The European mink is a small, semi-aquatic carnivore that lives in wetlands, rivers, and lakes.
It has a dark brown fur, a white patch on the chin, and a bushy tail.
It feeds on fish, frogs, crayfish, rodents, and birds.
It is mostly nocturnal and solitary, except during the mating season.

The European mink is one of the most endangered mammals in the world.
It has suffered from habitat loss, hunting, trapping, and competition and diseases from the introduced American mink.
Its population has declined by more than 90% in the last century, and it is now extinct in most of its former range.
It is only found in a few isolated areas in France, Spain, Romania, Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia.

The European mink is protected by law in most countries where it occurs, and there are several conservation efforts to save it from extinction.
These include captive breeding, reintroduction, habitat restoration, and public awareness campaigns.

The European mink is a unique and valuable part of the biodiversity of Europe.
It is a symbol of the beauty and fragility of nature, and a reminder of the responsibility of humans to protect the environment and its inhabitants.
