Favorite Images of Stoats
Animals list created by kathy
A list of my favorite images of stoats.
The stoat (Mustela erminea), also known as the short-tailed weasel, is a species of Mustelidae native to Eurasia and North America, distinguished from the least weasel by its larger size and longer tail with a prominent black tip.
The name ermine is often, but not always, used for the animal in its pure white winter coat or the fur thereof.
In the late 19th century, stoats were introduced into New Zealand to control rabbits. The stoats have had a devastating effect on native bird populations.
It is classed by the IUCN as Least Concern due to its wide circumpolar distribution and because it does not face any significant threat to its survival.
The ermine luxury fur is often used by Catholic monarchs, Pontiffs and Cardinals who sometimes use it as the mozetta cape and devotional images such as the Infant Jesus of Prague.
