In this book you will learn about the black footed ferret. I will be talking about where they live, what their predators are and early life. I chose this topic because l had no clue what this animal was and I wanted to learn more about it. This topic interested me because it's different than other animalsand it's out of the ordinary.
I dedicate this book to all the people that are helping to get the black footed ferrets back into the wild.

The black footed ferret is a very interesting animal that many people would not know about. Here are three facts about their life. One is their life as a baby two the early life finally the adult life.
Baby black footed ferrets are very cute as babies or kits. Once they are born they are blind and helpless. “ The kits are born blind and helpless until two months old” say defenders.org. This means that if they are attack by predators they will most not likely survive because they can not see. The kits stay underground for two months. “ staying below ground until they are about two months old” clams fws.gov. This means that when they are old enough they will go out and learn how to hunt with their mother. The babies are born with white fur and the average length is 2-3 feet. According to animalsspot.net it said “ that the infants are born with white fur. This means that when they are born they do not look like the adult ferrets they start to look like them at at about three months old.
