|snow marten rodent|
|A white rodent with a slender body and a long puffy tail looks for bird eggs.|
|The snow marten is a graceful predator with a long, slender body and a|
fluffy tail. It is a carnivorous mammal with sharp claws for digging, and
short legs. The marten is extremely fast over land, and is known to raid
the eggs from nesting water fowl. On rare occasions the martens have been
seen dragging off an unwary fledgling whose mother wasn't looking.
A snow marten is in an excellent condition.
