Tal's weasels are very dangerous native Talyxian creatures and are treated as pests. Equipped with venomous stingers, one sting can immobilize an Eltus person for about half a day. Stabbed victims experience a tell-tale sweet yet sour taste in their mouths before collapsing.
Weasels sometimes appear in groups, but they usually act alone. Because they don’t have a high level of intelligence and lack intersocial abilities, they are unable to effectively cooperate together to hunt as a pack. Instead, they opt to attack whatever prey they come across, often at random.
In spite of their harmful biology to people, there's some peculiar person who want to keep them as pets, especially citizens of Gold Ring. Due to high rarity of forest creatures in the city, some person have interest to strange creatures for fun, without consideration for its risk. And it often lead to an incident by an escaped them.
