Long-tailed weasel carrying a muskrat to her den

These are one of the larger mustelids found in North America, they are related to badgers, ferrets, minks, fishers, wolverines, martens and otters.

They are cunning and vicious hunters, so do not be fooled by their cute cuddly appearance. Their preferred method of dispatching prey is to chew on the base of the cranium to sever the connection between the head and the body, which renders their quarry helpless.

They possess excellent climbing/swimming abilities, they are renowned for their agility and speed and are able to take down prey up to 3 times their size.
