The yellow-throated marten is also known as the kharza, and is the largest marten in the Old World, with the tail making up more than half its length. It is an omnivore, whose sources of food range from fruit and nectar to small deer.
The yellow-throated marten is a fearless animal with few natural predators, because of its powerful build, its bright coloration and unpleasant odor.
It shows little fear of humans or dogs.
It is probably the most ancient form of marten, having likely originated during the Pliocene, as indicated by its geographical distribution and its atypical coloration.
