grecian weasel

Did you know Herodotus recorded that weasels were found in the Silphium region of Libya?

And Aristotle believed that before a weasel took on a snake in battle it first ate wild rue, which snakes didn't like?

Or that Aristophanes seemed to think that ferrets smell like flatulence?

The guy at All-About-Ferrets.com does, and he's passed his Ancient Greek Ferret homework on to you! Good job it is, too.
