Abstract

Siberian weasel Mustela sibirica Pallas, 1773 is one of the least known small carnivores in Nepal. Only a few authenticated localities of Siberian weasel are known to exist in Nepal. In March 2021, a week-long field trip to the Dhorpatan Valley documented the first confirmed record of Siberian weasel in Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve in Western Nepal.
