What is a baby ferret called ?

Baby ferrets called hobs or kits. Reproduction in forest ferrets begins at the end of spring. Approximately, after 45 days, females give birth to 6 calves. Feed the mothers of babies with milk, eventually adding to the lure of meat.

Female ferrets protect their cubs from any danger. Until the autumn, and sometimes until the next spring, the offspring will be next to the mother. Sexual maturity in mammals occurs at one-year-old age.

Enemies of ferrets are wolves, foxes (especially in winter), owls, golden eagles, some snakes and wild cats. But not only wild animals threaten ferrets. Unfortunately, human activity destroys the habitats of these beautiful animals.

The forest ferret has a beautiful and valuable fur, but there is no special craft for this predator.
