When vets at an Israeli wild animal hospital got a call about an injured weasel, they never had expected this. They truly got the shock of their life!
That gorgeous creature is called a marbled polecat. Also known as a tiger weasel, it’s a member of the Mustelinae family, which also includes ferrets, skunks, wolverines, and minks.
When you see them up close, you can understand the vets’ reaction. They’re so beautiful!
Watch out, though. Like the other members of the Mustelinae family, these guys are capable of producing a pretty rank odor when threatened.
Still, I wouldn’t mind hugging this little guy!
