The stoat (Mustela erminea), also known as the ermine or short-tailed weasel, is a species of Mustelidae native to Eurasia and North America, distinguished from the least weasel by its larger size and longer tail with a prominent black tip.

I believe you mean stoat. And no, stoats are not ferrets. The two animals are members of the same genus (the capitalized word in a species name) and both can be generally referred to as "weasels". Stoat is another name for an ermine.
