A tiny mammal with a slender body. It hunts in mouse holes as well as barn yards.

Weasels are small creatures who can be found in every biome except mountains and glaciers. They are solitary and may not be found during the winter. They're benign and one of the smallest animals in the game who aren't outright vermin, making them entirely harmless. A newborn weasel is called a weasel kit.

Weasels may be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets of low value. Their tiny size means they can't be butchered if hunted, and slaughtered tame ones will only give a skull in return. Weasels are also very short-lived, living no more than 3 years.

Some dwarves like weasels for their long bodies and their short legs.


  • Weasels share the same sprites as stoats.
