Now the animals are exploring the territory and learning to hunt.

In the natural and historical park “Kosinsky” specialists Mosprirody found two weasel puppies. Animals are now mastering hunting skills, exploring the territory.

Weasel is the smallest representative of the predatory squad. These animals are small in size: males can grow up to about 26 centimeters, females – up to 20. In the litter they usually have from four to eight cubs, maximum 12. Pregnancy lasts five weeks.

Puppies are born blind and deaf, and for the first month the mother hardly leaves them. 30 days after the birth of the cubs, she begins to feed them with meat. By three months they become independent.

They go on walks alone (without a mother) gradually, at first they stick together. Animals learn to hunt empirically. They eat rodents, frogs, lizards, insects, bird eggs, chicks. Kosinsky park with lakes and meadows is an excellent place for weasels to live.
