Weasel

Cute? Yes!! But....

These furry little beasts are not the cuddly type.  Weasels have been seen killing prey up to four times their size!  They generally capture animals that are young or old, sick or injured, or less fit to survive.  They have a tiny face and sharp claws and teeth.

This little fella was merely playing in our rock garden.  Do you want to see what a Weasel looks like in winter?

Did you know:
  • Minks and Ferrets are cousins of the Weasel
  • The weasel's coat is brown in summer and white in winter.  Just the tip of the tail stays black
