This mousepad features the stoat (Mustela erminea), also known as the ermine or short-tailed weasel, a species of Mustelid native to Eurasia and North America. His winter coat is pure white with a black tip at the tail. In summer, the fur molts to brown. He is a fierce hunter, feeding mainly on small rodents but quite capable of catching prey much larger. Here he is briefly pausing on a fallen log before continuing his hunting activities.
