Whoa, check it out. This is the picture that accompanies the Wikipedia article on mustela nivalis which led to the photographer’s Flickr page about the shot, which led to this weaseltastic fifteen seconds of YouTube of the same fight.
These two little bastards were so pissed off, they didn’t care who was watching.
Nivalis is the tiniest of the weasels. In fact, they always say it’s the smallest carnivore in the world, but aren’t shrews carnivores? Anyhoo, this is the animal the word “weasel” was invented for (the Brits call the bigger ones “stoats.” We call them all weasels, but we call this dude the “least weasel”). A male is about as long as a dollar bill, with a voracious appetite and a ferocious temper.
A weasel will fuck you up, man. Fuck you up good. The only thing badder than a weasel is another weasel.
I wonder who won?
