Greater Grison

We just learned about the Fisher.

Another type of animal in the same family is the Greater Grison.

These small animals grow to be about 60 centimeters, and weigh about 4 kilograms.
They are mostly black on the bottom and grey or white on top.

One funny thing about these animals is that when they are hunting they won't just run straight at their prey.
They will run in a zig zag pattern, then start grunting, then do a loud screech before jumping on their meal.
