In this video a stoat* hypnotizes a rabbit…
The stoat on a hunt will go nuts!
Who can ignore a stoat on steroids?
* Stoat or Ermine (Mustela erminea) — a species of Mustelidae or a short-tailed weasel native to the forests and tundra of Eurasia and North America; their coats become white in winter usually with black on the tip of the tail.
// Middle English, from Anglo-French hermin, of Germanic origin; akin to Old High German harmo weasel; First Known Use: 12th century
The usual romantic explanation for the dance is that it is intended to mesmerize prey. Stoat dances, rabbit goes what the fuck?, stoat bites his neck until he goes dead.
Or it could be the worms up their noses (found in nasal sinuses of mink, polecat and fox). Skrjabingylus nasicola. Lives in the gut of a snail. Mouse eats snail, weasel eats mouse and the worm — by a process that doesn’t bear thinking of — works its way up into the sinuses of the weasel. Up to 100% of the weasels in some areas are afflicted with Skrjabingylus. Eats holes in their little skulls, no lie (though the skulls in the picture might be of a skunk).
