This species of ferret has been domesticated for about 2,500 years, & was originally brought into the care of humans for the purpose of hunting animals such as rodents & rabbits. Ferrets are amazing capable hunters, & must eat multiple times per day to stay healthy. They are obligate carnivores & should consume meat & only meat. There are many incredible animals who are related to ferrets. Their close cousins include other mustelids such as otters, badgers, weasels & wolverines!
