Weasels are mammalian predators with elongated, fur-covered bodies, and short legs useful in following their prey into burrows.1 Many species of weasel exist, including the mink, stoat and ermine, and they are popular as familiars for spellcasters.23

Ecology

Weasels, alongside ferrets, are notable for being immune to the petrifying effects of a cockatrice's bite and a basilisk's gaze, and sometimes sneak into the lairs of these creatures to consume their eggs and young.4

Variants

A much rarer giant weasel species can grow up to 9 feet in length and weigh over 300 pounds.3 Amongst other locations, giant weasels are found on the Nesmian Plains of southern Nirmathas.5

Ermine are a type of weasel with white fur that can blend into snowy environments, improving its stealthiness.6
