Critter Quiz

Name the critter below…

1. Very small. Its latest (and last) victim is only 2.54 cm (1 inch) long.

2. Note the long nose, small eyes and short tail.

3. Very smooth fur.

4. Considered by many (including me) to be the most vicious mammal on the planet(If body sizes were equal). It can kill much larger animals and it’s metabolism is such that it needs to hunt constantly. If you catch one in a live trap in cold weather it will starve and freeze to death without food and protection.


What is it?

Gross notes…

1. The victim is still alive as I type.

2. The critter is dead due to an encounter with a car tire earlier this morning. (Note paper towel.)
