Two Stoat Mothers-To-Be | Discover Wildlife | Robert E Fuller

A mother and daughter stoat have both set up territory in my garden. Meet Crackle and Bandita!

Crackle is an adventurous stoat. She explored the garden thoroughly before finally settling under the decking outside my studio.


Meanwhile her mother, Bandita, settled at the far end of the territory. But then Bandita began to venture threateningly close to Crackle’s nest.


By early spring I noticed both females had rounded bellies. Although there were no males in the area, female stoats can delay implantation. This means they can be mated months in advance, but not begin pregnancy until spring when food is plentiful. Now with Bandita and Crackle preparing to give birth, I’m looking forward to the first glimpse of their kits!

I am a British wildlife artist and filmmaker on a mission to share my love for wildlife with the world. As well as creating detailed animal film and art portraits, I promote wildlife tours around the world and do all I can to help conserve and protect wildlife here at my home in Yorkshire. I hope that by putting nature in the frame I can foster a deep love for wildlife amongst my followers.

Of course, you may like to purchase my artwork which you can find on my website: Many of my paintings are portraits of the wonderful characters you watch here!
