Toxoplasma gondii. In the winter, stoats living in colder climes may turn almost completely white, with just a black tip to the tail.

Stoats (Mustela erminea) have been used to exterminate pest rodents and rabbits on small islands with few alternative prey (King ), but only in certain conditions which are hard to that they could control rabbits was the reason for bringing them to New Zealand, but the islands were too large and alternative prey too abundant (King, ).

Control of the primary prey of stoats such as rodents is as difficult as stoat control itself, but the use of immunocontraception against species such as mice (the target of current Australian. Footprints: Stoat tracks are similar to those of the weasel, but larger in size (width 2cm, length cm).

They are five-toed, and most likely to be seen in mud or snow. Stoats are unlikely to walk through a footprint tunnel, a mink raft is a more commonly used piece of equipment to record their presence. Without stoat control, kiwi could be lost from the wild within two generations.

Stoat predation is believed to be the main reason for the loss of almost half the wild takahe population in Fiordland in Stoats are also culprits in the decline of kaka, mohua, whio (blue. One physical adaptations that the stoats have is their body structure.
