Welcome to the Mustela nivalis web site. I hope you enjoy the pictures and information available. Mustela nivalis is a very interesting animal.  This particular weasel uses interesting tactics to capture prey items and also has the ability to change its fur coloration by molting.
    I myself found the weasel to be unique and also a very cute critter. Although this creature looks like a fury friend, it wouldn't enjoy being pet but is fun to watch. It does however enjoy chasing prey items and inhabiting burrows.
