Weasel

Weasel, small, carnivorous mammal (Mustela nivalis) related to the skunk, wolverine, and mink. A slender, lithe, red-brown creature, which often kills prey many times its own size, it measures only up to 10–11 in (25.4–27.9 cm) in the male, 8 in (20.3 cm) in the female. The normal diet is mice, voles, and fledgling birds, though rabbits may be taken. The many races of weasel are distributed throughout Eurasia, Africa, and the Americas.
