The ermine is the winter coloring of the stoat, a ferocious little animal in the weasel family. This cute little carnivore weighs only 4 to 8 ounces, yet preys on animals (like bunnies!) many times its size. The head and body are the same width, which allows the ermine to go into a burrow after its occupant. It wraps its long, tubular body around the victim and bites. (!)
Cute but deadly—a fascinating combination.
