No great need for the word "weasel"
Thank you so much for adding Latin to your course selections. I am curious about all the references to to weasels. Don't mind it so much, but don't often find myself talking or reading about weasels. Is someone on staff a great fan of this creature?
There are some claims that they were kept as pets back in the day, but those claims are disputed (they may just have been pests).
This little article gives a nice overview, but google will also give you plenty of results if you enter something along the lines of "weasel ancient rome": https://foundinantiquity.com/2013/10/28/the-weasel-in-antiquity-pet-or-pest/
Either way, I enjoy the occasional weasel hopping through my Latin lessons (and the drunk parrots too).
