The ferret (Mustela furo)  comes from the Latin meaning stinky little thief.  Ferrets are weasel family members with long slender bodies, short legs, and cone-shaped heads.

Ferrets were domesticated 3000 to 4,000 years ago in northern Europe.  Archeological evidence shows them engraved on the sides of vases, creating ferret havoc. First, early farmers used them for controlling the rodent populations in granaries, ships, and homes. Next, the Romans hunted with them. Finally, later medieval nobles used them for hunting rabbits in medieval times.

From 1860 to World War II, ferrets were widely used to protect grain stores from rodents in the American West. During WW II, ferrets pulled cables thru airplanes and phone cables.  They are still used for that today. In addition, they gained popularity as pets in the 1980s and 90s. As a result, quite an industry has grown up around them in pet stores and online handmade supplies.

The black-footed ferret is native to North America and lives in the prairie dog villages in abandoned tunnels.   He hunts and eats the prairie dog as his primary diet.
