Ferrets

  1. 1. Mammals: Ferrets By: Jing W.
  2. 2. Description Ferrets weigh around 2-3½ lb and are about 20 in. long. They usually have Brown to Black to White fur. Ferrets always have Black eyes and a pinkish nose. This is a white ferret.
  3. 3. Habitat Ferrets live in burrows in the ground. They range from southern central Canada to Texas, USA. Ferrets are also pets, so they can be anywhere around America . Ferrets are also exported and imported from and to many places. Ferrets don’t migrate or hibernate. They just live through the winter like us. Ferrets like to explore, but they take awhile to adapt to their environment (if it’s a new one). This is a ferret sticking its head out of his burrow.
  4. 4. Diet Ferrets are carnivores, and they usually eat things that are smaller than them or about the ferret’s size, such as hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, and many other rodent like animals. Ferrets eat cat food if he has an owner. A ferret eating food
  5. 5. Protecting Ferrets are not a ferocious animal so they don’t have many traits that protect them, so they just run away as fast as they can or they can climb up tall and steep things, because of their sharp claws. Some ferrets are can protect themselves, because they were specially trained by something or someone. A ferret climbing up a tree
  6. 6. Characteristics Ferrets are born alive with 4-7 (5-8 are born) brothers or sisters. Baby ferrets are called Kits. They turn into an adult at the age of 1. Ferrets are unique because of their bandit striped head. Hardly any animals have these unique bandit stripes. 2 bandit face ferrets
  7. 7. Problems The ferret is endangered because of diseases. Most ferrets living in the northern USA and southern Canada in the wild will most likely die of disease.
  8. 8. Thanks for watching!!! I like ferrets a lot and am glad I chose to research on it, because they are very cute and long, but I wish that they wouldn’t die of disease.
