Tiny things. A very large male Mustela nivalis ("least weasel") weighs half a pound. A very large female maybe a quarter pound. Ridiculously deadly for their size, largely because of sheer attitude.

eta just noticed that your picture was of Mustela frenata ("long-tailed weasel"). Similar size and deadliness.

The article wandered around the whole weasel kingdom, so I just went for a general weaselly pic.

There's a description of how fishers kill porcupines in there too - not for the faint of heart, poor little perambulating pincushions.

birds see the Earth's magnetic field using quantum physics? https://www.sciencealert.com/birds-s...-photoreceptor
Quote:
This seems to confirm that the mechanism is a visual one, based in the cryptochromes, which may be able to detect the fields because of quantum coherence.



This is how a bird might see magnetic fields. (Theoretical and Computational Biophysics/UofI)

Rare thylacine remains, housed in museum collections around the world, are precious archives that are part of our global heritage. We must take care of them. Moreover, facing this loss directly in the age of extinction is a political act.

I had no idea so many specimens are held in museums.

Also, that is a remarkably evocative article.
