Human need to make every living thing obey him and be around him as an entertaining friend or even an ornament, did not bypass sweet African ferrets (Mustela putorius furo). This specie comes from domestic European ferret from the rabbit family, gender weasel. These are very sensitive, emotional, intelligent and sophisticated animals. They are very territorial by nature, and even when they grow up in captivity, they defend their living-space with their lives. Since they belong to the family of carnivores, ferrets have sharp and solid fangs and very strong bite. Though they're carnivores, sometimes they're satisfied with smaller amount of fruit. The life span depends on the conditions in which they live and on the caring owner. In captivity, African ferret can live up to 8 years.
