How to draw Weasel and Ermine

How to draw Weasel and Ermine(stoat).

Friends, in my opinion it is not so difficult to draw a little animal, but it is difficult to choose a name for it from several almost synonyms. These mustelids are very similar to each other and if you are not a narrow specialist, it is very difficult to determine who is weasel, ermine or ferret… or stoat. We will draw some generalised picture of the small animal of the weasel family.
