"LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING"

Long Tailed Weasel - 7 Photos

 

 

It is an old saying but one that may ring true.

 

Who could resist that adorable weasel face with its long whiskers and pinkish lined round ears? A small little mustelid who changes the colour of its coat for Winter camouflage and yet, such an effective predator regardless of its size.

 

And when confronted with a face to face on view of the Long Tailed Weasel (Photo #1 & Photo #2), one should be grateful that this predator is the size that it is and not that of a much larger predator such as the cougar. Then rodents wouldn't be the only potential invitees of the weasel "having a friend for dinner" (Photo #3 through to Photo #5)

Fantastic!!!
The weasel was really lucky with the vole or pocket gopher (?), and looks very pleased with himself.
Wonderful closeups, love those big eyes!
