Adorable Footage Of Snow-White Weasel Peeking Out Of A Hollow Tree

One day, Chris Cooper of Michigan was taking a walk in the woods when came across this shy snow-white ermine peeking out of a hollow tree.

The ermine, which is a species of weasel, was saying hello, and thankfully Chris had a camera to record the cutest ever game of peek-a-boo.

Ermine’s have the ability to change the color of its coat based on the season, so this one was completely white because it was found in winter.

This is an evolutionary trait that helps them camouflage themselves from predators no matter the season.

You can often find these burrowing critters hiding in hollow trees, they will usually stay out of your way but will attack if they feel cornered.
