This morning I looked out my window and saw this guy in my backyard. I have only seen weasels in the pet store, so I called Erik over. He thought it might be someones beloved pet that got out. Well, it is actually an indigenous creature to north America. The long tailed weasel is a carnivore who thrives on rats, small rodents, and reptiles.
I think he is the cutest thing ever. We hope he keeps those pesky squirrels away from our plants.
