busy ermines

The ermine darts across the snow. It lives in fields and forests where it is cold most of the year. An ermine looks under rocks for food. It races up and down trees. It twists and turns around bushes. Ermines are busy hunters. They eat squirrels, birds, lemmings, and other small animals. Sometimes an ermine digs a tunnel under the snow. When it finds another animal’s den, the ermine slips inside and catches its dinner. In the summer, an ermine’s fur blends in with plants and rocks. In the winter, it blends in with snow.
