A small, carnivorous mammal with a long, slender body and a pointed snout. They have a short, sleek coat that can range in color from white to black, with various shades of brown and tan in between. They are social animals and are often kept as pets due to their playful and curious nature. They are highly intelligent and can be trained to perform tricks and tasks. In the wild, they are skilled hunters and are known to prey on rodents, rabbits, and birds.
Ferrets are native to Europe and parts of Asia, but they have been introduced to many other parts of the world. In some areas, they have become invasive and pose a threat to native wildlife. Conservation efforts aim to manage these populations and protect the natural habitats where wild ferrets still exist.
