  • An unspayed female ferret is called a jill while a spayed female is a sprite. An intact male is a hob and a neutered male is called a gib. Baby ferrets are called kits.
  • Ferrets have been domesticated for thousands of years; in fact, on the walls of some Egyptian tombs there are pictures of ferret-like creatures on leashes.
  • Ferrets have no inherent fear of humans.
  • A newborn ferret is so small that it can fit into a teaspoon!
  • All ferret kits have white fur at birth.

  • The average ferret lives to be 6 or 7 years old.
  • Ferrets like to crawl into small dark spaces to sleep.
