This video shows us a glad ferret mamma ready to show her cubs to her human – regardless of the possibility that that implied getting his finger with her mouth and dragging his hand towards her babies. Everybody on the Internet is going insane, with a few people remarking this was so sweet, it practically made them cry.
Ferret babies are called kits. They’re typically just around 2-2.5 inches in length and are conceived with delicate baby fuzz rather than fur.
They are born blind, hard of hearing and without teeth. Their eyes and ears don’t open until they’re 4-5 weeks old. Ferret mums know the correct number of their children and can tell on the off chance that one is missing – that is how great their maternal sense is.
In the initial couple of weeks, babies are absolutely dependent to their mother, yet that is alright, in light of the fact that for this situation they have the best – and the proudest – momma ferret on the planet.
