4860, Ermine, ERMINE 12'' from Hansa Creations are anatomically scaled to create the best reproduction of the life size stuffed animal and the most realistic stuffed animal in the industry.
Despite its small size, the ermine has a reputation as a fierce and territorial carnivore that can take on animals even bigger than itself.
The ermine is a type of weasel with a slender body that inhabits the temperate and arctic regions of Eurasia and North America. Also commonly known as the stoat or the short-tailed weasel, this species plays an important role in the ecosystem as both a predator and prey animal.
Ermine prefer woodlands near rivers, marshes, shrubby fencerows, and open areas adjacent to forests or shrub borders. Although ermine live primarily on the ground, they climb trees and swim well. Tree roots, hollow logs, stone walls, and rodent burrows are used as dens.
- The ermine is an animal with a rather luxurious coat of fur that has appealed to the upper classes of some societies for centuries. Ermine pelts reached the height of their popularity in 15th-century Europe when they signified power and status.
- One of the most famous paintings ever produced by Leonardo da Vinci is simply known as Lady with an Ermine. Dated between 1489 and 1490, it appears to depict an unidentified woman (possibly the mistress of the Italian prince who was employing Leonardo at the time) cradling a small ermine in her arms.
- The ermine is an animal that probably evolved some one or two million years ago. First arising in Europe and Asia, it crossed the Bering Strait and populated North America. The ermine’s resilient behavior allowed it to survive the last ice age.
