Weasel
In Animals. The Hebrew term choled of Leviticus 11:29 is considered by some translators to be a reference to weasel. Other scholars dispute this and suggest instead that the term should be viewed as a reference to an ermine or a martin or a rat or a mole or lastly a mole-rat. The text states that the above animal is to be viewed as non-kosher and unclean.

The weasel is a fearsome predator and is a member of the mustelid family.
