3. They're in the same family as Mink and Badger so I don't think they stay this cute

for too long.

But DAMN they're cute babies!

2. OMG these little mustelids are so friggin cute!



And let me also just randomly say:

"Well in that case, do you have a copy of The Amazing Adventures of Captain Gladys Stoat-Pamphlet and Her Intrepid Spaniel Stigg Amongst the Giant Pygmies of Beckles (Vol. 8)?"

4. Well that was adorable

The name stoat was new to me. Looks like it's also known as ermine?

What a great caretaker they had, gradually helping them build skills to be released into the wild.
Thanks for a nice bit of education today!

6. You are correct.

Welcome to DU, fellow Michigander! Your DU name is close to my old stomping grounds--I grew up in Charlevoix. I'm in Lansing now.

Glad to have you aboard.

7. Stoat is British for what's called the short-tailed weasel in the US,

ermine in their winter white coats, and they are very common in the northern woods around the Great Lakes. Cute little buggers, aren't they?

12. Thank you for the info!

I've never come across one in my traipsing around the woods. I'm not surprised, as they are so quick and apparently most active during dawn and dusk.

I ended up watching more videos about Whisper and Stuart. (The linked video in the OP was the best one, I thought.)

I don't think I have ever seen a stoat before. What little sweeties!
