Although there are 17 types of weasel the one most of us are familiar with is the ferret. Ferrets are a pretty good example of what all weasels look like, some other weasels may be a bit larger, some may be a bit smaller, but in general all weasels have the same body shape and structure as we see in the ferret. Weasels are long animals with short legs and a fairly pointed head. They are carnivores, meat eaters with sharp teeth.
