Black-footed Ferrets are a type of weasel. An endangered species, these mammals used to roam over much of the prairies and grasslands of North America, but are exceedingly rare now. They are nocturnal (more active at night) and live in prairie dog burrows that they take over (usually after eating the prairie dogs).

Anatomy: The Black-footed Ferret has very short legs, a long snout, and a slender body. It is 1 1/2 feet (46 cm) long (from snout to tail).

Diet: Ferrets are carnivores (meat-eaters). They eat prairie dogs, squirrels, insects, mice, and birds, which they hunt at night.

Distribution: Black-footed Ferrets are found in the central part of North America, from southern central Canada to Texas, USA.

Classification: Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Chordata, Class Mammalia (mammals), Order Carnivora, Family Mustelidae (weasels, ferrets, minks, skunks, otters, badgers), Genus Mustela, Species M. nigripes.
