Weasel on a log

 This photo of a weasel was taken at 3:54 am. Weasels are built like a snake, basically just a head and tail. Being long and thin has it's advantages, such as fitting into small holes and spaces to find their favorite prey-mice. It also has its disadvantages...with lots of surface area weasels lose heat quickly and require a fast metabolism to keep warm, which means they are constantly moving, hunting, and searching for calories.
