Stoat

Mustela erminea

Stoats are curious and quick in their movements. Every now and then, the stoat stops and stands on its hind legs to take a look around. Stoats live alone, and they do not tolerate other stoats of the same sex in their territory. To prepare for the winter, stoats switch to a white winter coat, much like their cousin, the least weasel. However, the tip of a stoat’s tail remains black all year round.

Conservation status

LC stands for “least concern.” The species is well-known, and the population is abundant or stable.
