This article is about the current version of DF.
A small weasel-like creature that hunts rodents and preys on the nests of birds.

Stoats are tiny animals found in taigas and tundras. Only marginally larger than a weasel, they're among the smallest creatures in the game who aren't vermin, and their benign demeanor makes them harmless to virtually anything. A male stoat is called a stoat jack, a female is called a stoat jill and a newborn is known as a stoat kit.

Stoats may be captured in cage traps and be trained into low-value pets. Hunted stoats are too small to be butchered, and slaughtered tame ones will only yield a skull. Stoats may live between 2 to 7 years, making them potentially longer-lived (if RNG is on your side) than weasels if you decide to keep them around for whatever reason.

Some dwarves like stoats for their ability to take down large prey.

Admired for its ability to take down large prey.
