Ferrets

Ferrets

The average life span of a ferret, barring accidents or serious illness, is 8-10 years. Full grown females weigh about two pounds while males are larger, generally about twice the weight of females. The most common color variations are shades of brown, grey and black, with the mask, feet and tails being the darkest in color. Some ferrets are white or pale yellow with black eyes, and "albino" ferrets are white with pink eyes.

It is especially important that ferrets should be spayed or neutered before they reach sexual maturity, and descenting is recommended. All of Animal Island Pets ferrets are spayed or neutered and descented from our supplier. All of our ferrets have received their first vaccination shots.

Ferrets as pets are not recommended for homes with very young children due to the excessive exuberance on both sides. Please stop in and talk with one of our staff about getting a ferret as a pet. If you like a boisterious, busy, active sometimes chaos causing pet, take a look at getting a ferret. (See or FAQ on ferrets.)
