Pop goes the weasel! Er ... ermine to be precise. Also known as the stoat and short-tailed weasel, this little fellow appears to be relaxed and resting but watch out, he could pop up and scamper off at any second. He is posed on a piece of natural driftwood, reclining and relaxed in his winter coat. Sure to make an interesting conversation piece, we have given this mount our taxidermy quality rating of Excellent.
