    Etymology: [OE. stot a stoat, horse, bullock; perhaps originally only of male animals, and akin to D. stooten to push, E. stutter; cf. Icel. sttr a bull, Sw. stut a bullock. Cf. Stot.]


  1. Stoat

    The stoat, also known as the ermine or short-tailed weasel, is a species of Mustelidae native to Eurasia and North America, distinguished from the least weasel by its larger size and longer tail with a prominent black tip. Its range has expanded since the late 19th century to include New Zealand, where it is held responsible for declines in native bird populations. It is classed by the IUCN as Least Concern, due to its wide circumpolar distribution, and because it does not face any significant threat to its survival. It is nominated among the 100 "world's worst invasive species".

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Stoat

    stōt, n. a kind of weasel, called the ermine when in its winter dress.—Also Stote. [Stot.]
