ABSTRACT
The weasel clan numbers 36 species and sub-species throughout North America. As a group they represent a high degree of development in predatory and carnivorous tendencies and are notorious for wanton killing. The winter coat is pure white with a black-tipped tail in the north, but in the southern parts of their range they remain brown and yellow throughout the year. This is a small, slender animal with a long neck, long body and short legs, weighing less than one-half pound. Many are so bold in nature that if they do hide from man a squeaking sound will cause them to show immediately.
