Mole, myself and Rat here are wondering if the Stoats and Weasels are going to take us seriously enough when we set about them.
What with us wearing our red noses and all that goes with it.
Not meaning to be disrespectful Mr. Badger.
The Scottish Word: whitrat with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
Stoats and Weasels.
Stoats are bigger than weasels. Both are smaller than rabbits which they hunt. Both are brown, long slim and fast with a white cravat and waistcoat, and white gloves.
Stoats have a longer tail with a bushy black tip. A weasel’s tail is shorter and stumpier in comparison to a stoat’s tail with no black tip.
Stoats tend to bound along with an arched back and weasels move quicker and flatter to the ground. Stoats turn white in winter in the colder bits of Scotland.
