BFF Means "Bonus Friday Facemelt" with Black-Footed Ferret Kits!


At The National Black-footed Ferret Conservation Center there have been 21 BFF kits born to date, including the first four kits born on Earth Day, April 22nd! The largest litter belongs to Mom Dahlia with 7 kits. Now that's a mother's "business" (business=a group of ferrets). Dahlia is a fabulous mom and all her kits are doing great! Here are two kits born to Mom Bronze. They are plump and healthy!

The Black-Footed Ferret, once thought to be extinct in the wild, was rediscovered in 1981 with a small population of 24 animals in Wyoming―30 years later the species’ future is brighter than ever.
