Dire weasels stalk their prey in the dark and then leap on it, biting and clawing.
Dire Weasels as Familiars
Dire weasels can serve as familiars for characters eligible to obtain familiars including arcane engineers, hexblades, mind weavers, shadowsworn, sorcerers, and wizards. To do so, the character must take the Improved Familiar feat, and be at least a 5th-level caster. Arcane casters with dire weasel familiars gain a +2 bonus to Reflex saves.
Dire Weasels as Animal Companions
A dire weasel may be trained using Handle Animal. A 4th-level druid, 6th-level outdoorsman, or 4th-level ranger may take a dire weasel as an animal companion with an effective druid level modifier of -3.
