The recording seems to add an extra e' (which I thought might beet') between callidae' andceleriter'.

Yes, that is what I heard too. I typed it (Mustelae callidae et celeritur currunt), but it didn't make sense so I pushed the speaker icon to listen again and the darned thing timed out. That was frustrating! Next time I get that sentence I will report that the audio doesn't sound right.

...presumably so they don't get caught and sacrificed...

Nonne swiftly acceptandum est?

Quickly or fast? Does celeriter currunt mean that the clever weasels run immediately or run at a high speed? How would you say the other thing?

Rather at a high speed. For "immediately", there is e.g. "statim".

Just trying out a synonym for clever: "crafty." RE-JECTED

This male voice in the audio sounds like saying "Mustellai callidai celerriter currunt".
