Haida Ermine

We just learned about the Ferret.

Another animal in the same family is the Haida Ermine, also called mustela haidarum.

This small animal only lives on a tiny island on the west side of Canada called Haida Gwaii.

It changes its fur color from brown in the summer to white in the winter.
When it is brown the local Haida people call it daayĆ”ats’, and when it is white they call it tlag.
