They are smaller than the closely related greater grison, with a head-body length of 11 to 20 in. and a tail 5.5 to 7.5 in. long.

The remainder of the body is black or nearly so, apart from a pale buff-colored stripe running from the forehead to the shoulders along the lower margin of the grey furred area. The feet are webbed, with five toes ending in sharp, curved, claws.

Galictus or Lesser grison are found throughout most of southern South America from sea level to as high as 13,800 ft. elevation in a wide range of habitats.

Galictus or Lesser grison are carnivorous, feeding on small to medium rodents, birds, frogs, lizards, and snakes. They also eat fruits, such as avocados.

They are among the major predators on cavies, including wild guinea pigs, and also of nesting grebes.

They possess anal scent glands that spray a noxious chemical similar to skunks. They are monogamous, hunting together when raising their litters of two to five young.
