Elzar using a spice weasel

The Spice Weasel is a type of animal similar to a weasel. Used in the preparation of food, particularly Neptunian food. It grunts and releases a cloud of spice when squeezed. The shape of the cloud from the weasel's nose is heart-shaped, though Elzar indicates that star shapes can be produced from another orifice. [1]

Elzar is seen selecting a spice weasel from a rack of several, suggesting the quality of spice can be determined from the outward health of the weasel.[2]

At one point, it is suggested that a special type of spice weasel can be found on Mars[citation needed].
