Pop goes the weasel! Er ... ermine to be precise. Also known as the stoat and short-tailed weasel, this little fellow has popped up to take a look around for a tasty morsel. He is posed on a piece of natural driftwood, upright and alert in his winter coat. Sure to make an interesting conversation piece, we have given this mount our taxidermy quality rating of Excellent.
