:) What Arctic animal has two fur coats?

Answer:  The stoat is a type of weasel whose camouflage varies with the seasons.  In summer, its brown fur blends in with the rocky landscape.  In autumn, it sheds its summer fur, and grows a new, thick coat of pure-white hairs.  In its winter coat, the stoat is called an ermine.
