Weasel, common name for small, fur-bearing, carnivorous mammals of the genus Mustela, family Mustelidae, comprising numerous species and subspecies. They are most abundant in North America and Europe but also occur in South America, northern Africa, and Asia. The various species of weasel are similar in appearance and habits. They are lithe, slender animals with elongated necks, muscular, snakelike bodies, and short legs. They vary from 13 to 40 cm (5 to 16 in) in length, and the male is larger than the female. Their heads are small and triangular with pointed snouts. Nearly all weasels are brown above and white beneath, and those found in northern regions turn white in the winter (see Ermine). In warmer regions weasels retain their brown coat throughout the year. The weasel, which preys on mice, rats, birds, and rabbits, is largely nocturnal. Extremely agile, it attacks animals larger than itself. Although sometimes a serious threat to poultry, it also feeds on rodents around farms. When young, the weasel can be tamed. The female makes a nest of straw, leaves, and moss in a ground crevice or a hollow tree. A litter has four or five young. Among the best-known species are the Arctic weasel, M. erminea, known also as the stoat, or ermine; the longtail weasel, M. frenata, of the U.S. and Mexico; and the mink, M. vison, native to the eastern and northern U.S. and to Canada. The black-footed ferret (see Ferret), M. nigripes, the largest of the weasels and native to the Rocky Mountain region, is known as the prairie-dog ferret because its predominant prey is the prairie dog. Other weasels also are called ferrets; polecat is another name for some species.

2. Least Weasel - Mustela Nivalis
Least weasel wildlife Explorer. International Masters Publishers AB, 1998,USA. Long, A. Charles, weasel World Book 21 2000 by World Book Inc.
Least Weasel
Genus: Mustela
nivalis Deep in the woods of the Northeast Asian deciduous forest roams the least weasel. Its long slender body and sharp nails help this mammal hunt day and night. The least weasel is the smallest carnivore in the world. The least weasel's habitat consists of living in stone walls, hedges, farmland, and the woods. Least weasels avoid deep forests, sandy deserts, and open spaces. Male and female least weasels both have their own territory. Females may overlap with another female, but a male's territory is all his, he may even fight for it. The male's territory may consist of 40 acres. The least weasel is mostly found in the Northeast Asian deciduous forest, which covers Korea, Eastern Asia, Japan, China, and Russia. Least weasels can range in this area from 30 degrees to 47 degrees North latitude and 110 degrees east Fahrenheit to 145 degrees east Fahrenheit in longitude. The Northeast Asian deciduous forest has warm summers and cold winters. It is home to many mammals and birds but is currently threatened because of loggers chopping down trees. The least weasel's coat is a dirty brown and dirty white color most of the year, but in the winter the fur turns to pure brown and pure white to blend in with the snow. The coat does not grow longer than 0.6 inches. It has a slender body, which are 4 to 10 inches long. A male's weight ranges from 1.5 to 8.75 pounds. A female's weight ranges from 0.8 to 4.3 pounds. The least weasel's head is long and an oval shape, like a ferret. Their eyes are usually black and their ears are short and stubby even though they have very good hearing. Least weasels have very good sense of smell with their long nose. Their paws have 5 toes with sharp claws used as weapons in hunting.

ARCTIC wildlife. How animals are adapted to live in the Arctic. It is the largestmember of the weasel family. It is most common on the mainland of Nunavut.
How animals are adapted to live in the Arctic
polar bear - caribou - musk ox - wolf - wolverine
arctic fox - ermine - lemming - arctic hare
arctic ground squirrel - birds - whales - harp seal - walrus ANIMALS that live on LAND POLAR BEARS spend most of their time on the pack ice or in the water, where they can hunt their favorite food - the ringed seal. The white fur helps the bear sneak up on seals that are laying on the ice packs. If the bear sees a seal's breathing hole, it waits by the hole and drags the seal out as soon as its head appears. In the summer it is harder to catch seals, so before summer comes, the bears eat as much as they can to get fat, then live off the fat in their bodies. Females dig dens in the snow where they hibernate during the worst part of the winter. The cubs are born in the den. polar bear waits for a seal *** more about the POLAR BEAR CARIBOU are members of the deer family. They move across the Arctic in large herds. Caribou eat moss, lichen and green plants. For the winter they go to the forests of the south where trees give them protection from the wind and the snow. In the spring the caribou leave the forests and go to the tundra to have their calves. A baby caribou is able to stand and walk an hour after it is born. It can run when it is a day old. The baby has enemies like wolves, bears and eagles. *** more about the CARIBOU
THE MUSK OXEN have thick overcoats of shaggy long straight hair that hang down to the ground. Their undercoats are thick brown fleece. Some of the coat is shed in the summer. They huddle together in groups for protection and to keep warm. When wolves attack, the musk oxen form a circle around the calves. The adults face outward and use their sharp horns for defence.

9. LEMMINGS - Arctic Wildlife
The ermine (weasel), Arctic fox , Snowy Owl, wolf and wolverine are just someof their enemies. Ermine (weasels) can fit down the lemmings burrows.
Lemmings look like fat furry hamsters. They have strong legs and claws for digging. Thick fur helps to keep them warm.
There are collared lemmings and brown lemmings. Collared lemmings' coats turn from brown to white for the winter.
Lemmings live in the treeless areas of Northern Canada. In the winter lemmings live in burrows in the snow. They make many snow tunnels. They are safe from the cold and wind. Their underground burrows have rest areas, bathrooms and nesting rooms. Lemmings make nests out of grasses, feathers and musk ox wool.
Lemmings eat plants, roots, berries and lichens. They gather seeds to eat in the wintertime.
Lemmings are eaten by many animals. The ermine (weasel), Arctic fox , Snowy Owl, wolf and wolverine are just some of their enemies.
Arctic foxes can sniff out lemmings in their burrows under the snow.
Ermine (weasels) can fit down the lemmings' burrows. They chase the lemmings into their burrows and kill them by biting their necks. When there are fewer lemmings, there are fewer predators (animals that hunt lemmings for food).

14. Pikas: Wildlife Notebook Series - Alaska Department Of Fish And Game
The weasel’s small size allows it to pursue pikas into burrows and among therocks. A relative of the weasel, the marten, also hunts pikas on occasion.

Licenses/Permits Regulations News ...
The northern or collared pika Ochotona collaris ) is closely related to hares and rabbits. Also called the "rock rabbit," "coney," and "little chief hare," the pika’s name is derived from the Siberian word for this animal, puka . All but 2 of the 19 existing species of pika occur in Asia, where they probably originated. Fossil remains indicate that the pika family is over 15 million years old and most likely reached North America by crossing the Bering land bridge. General description: Pikas have stocky bodies, short legs, and are almost tailless. A distinct grayish patch on the shoulder and neck forms the northern pika’s "collar," appearing in definite contrast to the white fur on its chest and stomach. Pikas have fur-covered feet, but bare toe pads. Their sharp, curved claws help them climb from rock to rock with ease. Pikas are highly alert, possessing excellent hearing and vision. When fully grown, they weigh about 5 ounces (140 gms). Pikas form colonies in mountainous terrain, living in old rock slides, talus slopes, or around large boulders, usually with a meadow or patches of vegetation in the vicinity. They are normally found at high elevations, but isolated colonies near sea level have also been found. Small burrows at the edge of rock piles and the presence of small, dark, oval droppings indicate the existence of a pika colony. The presence of their "hay piles" will positively identify the colony.

16. Weasel Species Account

Weasels Scientific name Mustela frenata (long-tailed weasel); Mustela nivalis (least weasel) Description Two species of weasels live in Illinoisthe long-tailed weasel and the least weasel. The long-tailed weasel is 2-3 times larger than the least weasel. Both have long, slender bodies, short legs, and a broad, slightly flattened head that's barely larger around than the neck. Male long-tailed weasels are larger (13-16 inches in length; 6-16 ounces) than females (11-14 inches in length; 3-9 ounces). The tail is nearly half as long as the head and body combined and has a distinctive black tip. The least weasel is the smallest living carnivore in Illinois. Males are up to 10 inches in length (including the tail) and weigh 2.1-3.2 ounces. Females are up to 9 inches in length and weigh 1.2-2.5 ounces. The tail is less than one-fourth of the length of the head and body combined. Both species have a summer coat that's reddish-brown or tan except for a yellowish-white belly. Weasels begin shedding their summer coats during early fall and replace them with winter coats that tend to be lighter in color. In parts of northern Illinois, the winter coat is nearly all white, helping them to blend in with a snowy background and avoid detection by predators like hawks and owls. Further south (where snow cover is uncommon), the winter coat can have patches of brown and white or remain mostly brown like the summer coat. Weasels molt again in the spring, replacing their winter coats with darker summer colors.
