What do Weasels eat?

What do Weasels eatSmall rodents make up the majority of the least weasel's diet. On average, this small carnivore must consume half of its body weight every day to survive. This is about two deer mice or one meadow vole each day. When rodents are not readily available, the least weasel will eat birds' eggs, nestlings, insects, and lizards. In the extreme northern populations Mustela nivalis will eat carcasses of brown lemmings.
