An adorable pet weasel belonging to a Yorkshire wildlife artist is to represent Britain in a documentary about the super powers of the world’s smallest animals.Fidget, who was hand-reared by Robert E Fuller, is to feature in Super Small Animals, at 8pm on BBC1 tonight, Wednesday, August 9th.
The programme, presented by biologist Patrick Aryee, explores the way extremely small animals are proportionally among the strongest and bravest in the world.Patrick Aryee was filmed touring the globe to explore animals that can pack a punch way above their weight.
Fidget, who is so small he can curl up to sleep on the palm of your hand, is one of the smallest mammals to be found in the UK.Despite their diminutive size, weasels are notoriously ruthless and are so ferocious they will even take on rats twice their size.
Fidget was filmed at the artist’s studio in Thixendale, North Yorkshire, earlier this year demonstrating this tenacious courage in a maze designed to test his agility and intelligence.The tiny terror will be seen running along and through super slim pipes hanging above the artist’s easel.
