Ferrets are incredibly social small mammals. Their intelligence is remarkable and you can easily teach them tricks such as roll over and fetch, just like a dog. Their intelligence also leads to extreme curiosity, which can sometimes translate to mischief.
- Petco ferrets are neutered and as social animals, they enjoy each others company.
- Their name comes from the Latin word "furonem" which means thief; no doubt due to their mischievous nature.
