    Mustela nivalis (least weasel)
    (Mustela nivalis nivalis)
    The least weasel is the world's smallest carnivore (weight 25-80 g). It is an efficient predator of voles and other small mammals, as it can hunt them in the burrows and under the snow during the long winters of north. The least weasel is common and abundant predator in northern hemisphere, but its numbers tends to fluctuate strongly and follow the population cycles of its main prey, voles and lemmings. The least weasel is special among other carnivores because of its great reproduction capacity: the litter size can be more than ten, a female can give a birth twice during the same season and young females can have their own litters during the season they have born.
