Stoats also known as Ermine is a carnivore that hunt primarily at night and feeds mostly on rodents, especially mice, voles, and lemmings. On occasion, may kill ground squirrels, rabbits, birds and bird eggs, and insects. The ermine is capable of killing animals much larger than itself. Surplus killing may occur, and ermines cache extra food for later use.
