FERRET , Mustela putorius furo
Mustela putorius furo, commonly known as ferret, is a carnivorous mammal belonging to the mustelid family. The ferret, used for centuries to depend on man, hardly survives in nature. The length may vary from 40 cm to the male to 60 cm. Females are always smaller than males. The weight varies between 500 grams and 1 kg of female and between 1.5 kg and 2 kg in the male. The ferrets sleep for several hours; We can say that these animals have two levels of activity: either they are actively involved in the game, or sleep deeply. They are very affectionate and in general less aggressive animals. Like the majority of his Mustelidi relatives, the ferret has a very elongated body, with short paws. The spine is particularly flexible and allows it to move easily back in narrow spaces. An exemplary lives on average 7-10 years.
