Grison, weasel-like animal (genus Galictis), also known as huron. There are 2 types of grisons—the greater grison, which has gray/brown fur and may reach a length of 27.5 in (70 cm), and the little grison, which has yellow/brown fur and is considerably smaller. All grisons have a white strip of fur across their forehead and down the sides of their neck and their diet includes snakes, mice, birds, and insects. Found in Central and South America, grisons are diurnal creatures who live in both forests and open country and make their dens under tree roots, rocks, or logs.
