Mustela nivalis, least weasel yawning, British Wildlife Centre, Surrey, August…

Weasel. The weasel is a highly active predator found throughout the United Kingdom and often confused with its close relative, the stoat. However, it is significantly smaller than the stoat, being the smallest European carnivore, and it never has a black tip to its tail.Weasels eat mainly mice, voles and shrews, but will probably kill and eat any other prey that they can master, including young rabbits, small birds and eggs.

Least Weasel (Mustela nivalis)  The least weasel is the world’s smallest carnivore, occurring throughout Eurasia, North America and North Africa. They can weigh as little as 1.04 ounces (29.5 grams) or as much as 8.8 ounces (250 grams). Their size is also very variable, but they can be as small as 5 inches (131 millimeters) long, including the tail! Don’t let that fool you—despite their petite size, they are formidable and fierce hunters.     Photo Credit: Keven Law from Los Angeles, USA

This is a picture of a stoat. They are apart of the weasel family (ferrets are a weasel, just domesticated) but very different animals. They change all white during the winter. They are smaller and faster than a weasel/ferret.

WEASEL.Widespread throughout Britain, weasels are our smallest and probably most numerous carnivores. They specialise in hunting small rodents. The weasel's small size enables it to search through tunnels and runways of mice and voles. Access to tunnels means weasels can hunt at any time of the day or year. They do not hibernate and can hunt even under deep snow.Young are weaned at 3-4 weeks and can kill efficiently at 8 weeks.
