Baby Long-tailed Weasel

Mustela frenata

Notes:

My 200th spotting! This baby Long-tailed Weasel came in the other day and received supportive care before being sent to one of our foster care volunteers. Weasels are aggressive carnivores and although they prey primarily on mice, they have been known to attack animals much larger than themselves. I think this is the cutest animal I've ever seen in my entire life. Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue, Petaluma, CA.
