Long-Tailed Weasel

We just learned about the Haida Ermine.

Another animal in the same family is the Long-Tailed Weasel also called the bridled weasel, masked ermine, big stoat, or Neogale frenata.

These animals live in North and South America, weigh about 9 ounces and are about one foot long.

They grow a brown coat in the summer, and it turns white in the winter.

These weasels give off a strong smell to leave a mark in places sometimes, by dragging their smelly body across rocks or other things.
