Is the weasel a rodent?
Yes, Ferrets are in the Weasel family. Weasels are mammals in the genus Mustela of the Mustelidae family. In technical discourse, however, as in American usage, the term "weas…el" can refer to any member of the genus, or to the genus as a whole. Of the 16 extant species currently classified in the genus Mustela, ten have "weasel" in their common name. Among those that do not are the stoat or ermine, the two species of mink, and the polecats or ferrets. depends what you mean by weasels--they are in the weasel genus Mustela. So they are sometimes referred to as weasels, but not always and both are correct. Ferrets are cousins to the weasel, but more closely related to the European polecat. But there all in the genus and are all VERY closely related.
well it's 15 to 23in tall
A rodent is an animal with two sharp, constantly growing incisors. These teeth are kept short by gnawing. Rodents include rats, mice, hamsters and gerbils. They are mostly… very small, although the biggest rodent is the capybara, which can grow to up to 4.3 feet. Canine ancestors may be a rodent or rodent related.
No. Weasels are members of the order Carnivora. Rodents have their own order of Rodentia. Therefore, their families are also different. weasels are members of the family …Mustelidae, and rodents have a number of different families within their order.
Weasel is a common name for about 12 species of mammals in the genus Mustela of the Mustelidae family. They are found throughout North America, Asia, Africa, South America, an…d Europe. Weasels are in the famil y Mustelidae of the order Carnivora (they are carnivores) . Originally, the name "weasel" was applied to one species of the genus, the European form of the Least Weasel (Mustela nivalis). Early literary references to weasels, for example their common appearances in fables, refer to this species rather than to the genus as a whole, reflecting what is still the common usage in the United Kingdom. In technical discourse, however, as in American usage, the term "weasel" can refer to any member of the genus, or to the genus as a whole. Of the 16 extant species currently classified in the genus Mustela, ten have "weasel" in their common name. Among those that do not are the stoat or ermine, two species of mink, and three species of ferrets. . Animals in the weasel family - Ferret, stoat, polecat, mink, ermine, black-footed ferret, long tailed weasel, least weasel. Other relatives of the weasels are martens, otters, badgers, and wolverines. The terms stoat and ermine are terms for the long tailed and short tailed weasels in their winter coats.. Weasels vary in length from fifteen to thirty-five centimeters (six to fourteen inches), and usually have a light brown upper coat, white belly and black fur at the tip of the tail; in many species, populations living at high latitudes molt to a white coat with black fur at the tip of the tail in winter. They have long slender bodies, which enable them to follow their prey into burrows. Their tails are typically almost as long as the rest of their bodies. As is typical of small carnivores, weasels have a reputation for cleverness and guile. They also have tails that can be anywhere from 22-33 cm long and they use these to defend the food they get and to claim territory from other weasels. The average weasel weighs about 198 grams (7 ounces).. Weasels feed on small mammals, and in former times were considered vermin since some species took poultry from farms, or rabbits from commercial warrens. Certain species of weasel and ferrets have been reported to perform the mesmerizing weasel war dance, after fighting other creatures, or acquiring food from competing creatures. In folklore at least, this dance is particularly associated with the stoat.. Collective nouns for a group of weasels include boogle, gang, pack, and confusion.. Weasels occur all across the world except for Antarctica, Australia and neighboring islands.. source: wikipedia
no rodents are here
A rodent does not have tentacles, laser beams, a knowledge of musical notation, or many, many other things.
The simple answer is- a rodent is a small furry animal with two large incisor teeth. They are mostly onmivorous. 40% of all animals are rodents. Here is the complex answer; …All life on earth is put into separate categories, which helps people to understand how different life forms relate to each other- how they are different and similar. This practice of categorising life is called Taxonomy. As a mouse is a rodent, I will use a mouse as an example. Firstly all life is separated into 'domains'. There are three domains; Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya. All animals and plants are 'Eukarya'. Then they are separated (they are so annoying!) further into 'kingdoms'. There are six kingdoms; Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Protista, Archaea, and Bacteria. Mice are, of course, in the first group 'animalia' or 'animals'. Then we have the 'phylum'. The phylum that mice fit into is 'Chordata', and we humans are also Chordata, and anything that has a backbone such as a fish, a crocodile, or a finch. Then we have the 'class'. The class of a mouse is 'mammal'. Again, we humans are also mammals, however- feathered and scaly animals are not mammals, they are a different 'class'. Then we finally come to the 'order'. This is where we humans separate from mice. Mice are of the order 'rodent' and we are of the order 'primate'. But the categories do not stop dividing there, rodents can be separated into their separate 'family', then further into 'genus' then even further into separate 'species'. Our example of a mouse, then, in all these ever decreasing categories, looks like this: Eukaryote; animal; chordate; mammal; rodent; muridae; mus; mouse. Other rodents include rats, squirrels, chipmunks, gophers, porcupines, beavers, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, degus, chinchillas, prairie dogs, and groundhogs. They all share enough similarities to be put into one category together.
When inserted into a claim, weaselers give the claim's author a way out in case the claim is challenged. Examples include the use of "perhaps", "maybe", or "if you agree or no…t" and such.
Rodents are small and are mamals. They always live on the ground. The largest rodent is the Capybara.
Yes there are weasles in Arkansas. The long tailed weasel is a point of concern on the Arkansas mammals list.
Any of various mammals of the order Rodentia which have two pairs of continuously growing and self-sharpening teeth.
all rodents have incizor teeth that never stop growing so they always need something to qnaw on.
