In cold winters, an ermine’s reddish-brown coat can turn pure white to help it blend into the snowy terrain. Ermines are a member of the weasel family and are welcome in many communities for their proclivity to eradicate pests. Ermines have strong front claws for digging and climbing, yet are agile enough to walk along ice and snow. Next time you’re on board with Eccles, say wave hello to our winter-coated friend.
