Introduction
It is also known as the pale weasel, Altai weasel or solongoi, and mainly lives in high-altitude environments, as well as rocky tundra and grassy woodlands. This weasel rests in rock crevices, tree trunks, and abandoned burrows of other animals or the animals it previously hunted. The home range size of this animal is currently unknown. Geographical distribution for this species lies in parts of Asia from Kazakhstan, Tibet, and the Himalayas to Mongolia, northeastern China, and southern Siberia. The most common area for this species, however, is Ladakh, India. The species is listed in appendix III of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) of wildlife fauna and flora.
Threats
Main threats are mainly caused by human activities and traffic jams on road. Another main problem is reduction of food due to over grazing of cattles and habitat loss.
