The weasel is a mammal belonging to the Mustelidae family.

A weasel is one possible corporeal form of the Patronus Charm.[1] Arthur Weasley's Patronus took the form of a weasel.[2]

Behind the scenes

J. K. Rowling has stated that the surname Weasley is derived from the weasel -

"In Britain and Ireland the weasel has a bad reputation as an unfortunate, even malevolent, animal. However, since childhood I have had a great fondness for the family mustelidae; not so much malignant as maligned, in my opinion."[3]
