I was totally unprepared when this weasel popped out of nowhere. The long-tailed weasel is one of the larger members of the genus Mustela in North America. Brown in the summer with yellowish underparts. Also has some white markings on it's nose and feet.
Spotted on one of the boardwalks at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.
Distributed from southern Canada throughout all the United States and Mexico, southward through all of Central America and into northern South America.
