Mink - Digitigrade or Plantigrade?

    As the title says, are mink digitigrade or plantigrade? I'm helping out a guy who's working on a mink skeleton, and he's asking about the feet. It seems everywhere I ask I get mixed feedback, about 50/50. A couple of ferret owners have told me their ferrets only walk on their toes when playing or hunting, so maybe it just depends on the pose? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would venture that a long search through pictures of wild mink will answer that.
