Have you ever heard of an Ermine? Neither have I, until I saw this video posted on Facebook; and I have to admit, this is one of the cutest animals I have ever seen.
An “Ermine” (or stoat) is also known as a short-tailed weasel, a species that is native to Eurasia and North America, and it’s distinguished from a “typical” weasel by its larger size and longer tail with a prominent black tip. Ermines are most often white, but they may appear in other colors as well.
In the video below, one of these cutie pies is captured on camera crawling out of a tree burrow, just scroll down to watch!
During the late 19th century, stoats were introduced into New Zealand to control the rabbit population.
Unfortunately, they’ve also had a devastating effect on the native bird population. The stoat is named as one of the world’s top 100 “worst invasive species,” but if you ask me, they’re absolutely adorable!
Watch what happens when this curious little guy is caught on camera, absolutely darling!
