'Nature: The Mighty Weasel'
(DVD / PG / 2020 / PBS)

Overview: In Yorkshire, a unique English garden rigged with over 50 cameras gives a rare insight into the dramatic life of a mother weasel as she tries to raise her first family.

And new science uncovers the problem-solving abilities of the honey badger, the secrets behind the ferret's legendary flexibility and the wolverine's remarkable sense of smell.

Discover the world of the mighty weasel.

DVD Verdict: Narrated by Ana Gasteyer, 'The Mighty Weasel' is a rather wondrous, and eye opening discovery about the truth of the infamous weasel; often associated with unsavory behavior!

Do these critters deserve their bad reputation? Well, perhaps so naughty ones do, but for the most part we follow the adventures of a lovely first-time weasel mom, fearless honey badger and a tiny orphan weasel here in the brand new documentary from PBS.

For those not in the know, the weasel family, also known as mustelids, is one of the most varied animal groups in the world, with about 60 different species found from the Arctic to the tropics.

At only six inches long, the Least weasel is the smallest carnivore on earth. They also have the strongest bite, pound for pound, of any mammal.

Nearly a million stoats and weasels live in the British countryside. One stoat enthusiast, wildlife artist and photographer Robert Fuller, transformed his country garden into Stoat City, filled with tunnels, nests, secret chambers and around 50 hidden cameras!

One stoat mom named Bandita comes to live in Stoat City to raise her kits. Bandita utilizes the space to protect and play with her kits, gather food and fight against predators like owls over turf.

Oh, and we also learn more about the now infamous Honey badgers, who are known for their brawn, but they also have surprisingly large brains for their size.

On the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in South Africa, researchers use puzzles to test honey badgers’ problem-solving skills, including a challenge to determine if they possess the ability to use tools.

They pass each test with flying colors, proving that honey badgers are among the top innovators in the animal kingdom.

So take the weight off, sit down and watch along as first-time weasel mom Bandita raises her kits in a unique garden, whilst meeting tiny but mighty orphan weasel Twiz on her journey back to the wild. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
