The originally wild predator and hunter has now become a humane and tame pet through domestication. Since they belong to the stink marten group, our pet ferrets still have their stink glands. However, these are only used in exceptional anxiety or stressful situations. Because ferrets are very social animals, they prefer to live in groups. Male ferrets must be neutered in a timely manner, because as unneutered males they often exhibit "macho" behavior and can even become aggressive and spray urine to mark their territory.
The life expectancy of ferrets is up to 8 years. Their body length is up to 40 cm in females and up to 70 cm in males. Females can weigh up to about 1000 g, males up to about 2000 grams.
The best living environment for our ferrets are very large enclosures with a minimum size of 120 x 80 cm, as these animals have an extreme need for exercise. Ferrets also need free time in their own room and a lot of variety. Because ferrets are real climbers, the enclosure must be very high and have different levels for the animals. Variously attached ladders, stairs, ropes and cords, willow tunnels and pipe systems - and ideally also a hammock.
They like to withdraw and hide in their own enclosure. Ferrets do not need bedding, but a soft blanket or basket is very pleasant for them.
Very important! Ferrets are not only tame, but also very playful. Toys are therefore very welcome!
Add an estate bucket or digging bucket and the playing can begin! Ferrets can also be toilet trained and will happily use a toilet.
