Anyone ever seen one? I have. Pretty cool little weasel. Best observed in late fall before the snow files - pure white with black eyes and tip of tail.

Yes, they are pretty cool looking! The grandkids have fun watching them play on the riverbanks up north.
We have an ermine pelt, from the winter. (In winter, they are white with the black tipped tail, in summer they are brown.) I was amazed at how silky soft their fur is.

Small + Silky + Warm = the high price of stoles and jackets.

The fur of royalty.

Just my 'weaselly' outlook. Pun intended. LOL

They are cool to watch. I used to see them occasionally on the banks and swimming the river when I was canoeing.
