Long-tailed weasels have brown fur on the upper side and yellowish-white belly fur with a black-tipped tail. They also have a long narrow body, long whiskers, and a long tail, about 50% of their body. Although they look cute and cuddly, they are relentless and ferocious predators with a fearless attitude about attacking bigger animals.
They mainly prey on rodents and sometimes eat lizards, small birds, and fruits. These weasels rely on scent and sound to detect their prey and kill them by biting the base of the prey’s skull. They are also very aggressive when protecting their territory from intruders.
