They prefer to live where humans are and are hence found only in ports and large cities. They are poor climbers, but dig well and may excavate wide-ranging burrow systems.

 

They are thought to have originated from northern China, and spread to most parts of the world. Today, they are the most successful mammal on our planet. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
