Not just a pet

Domestic ferrets may have descended from the European polecats. They vary in color from sable, albino, silver, cinnamon, to chocolate. Most people today are familiar with them as pets. They are vary playful animals and will even make friends with other species, such as cats and some dogs.

Ferrets like to explore holes and can typically fit through any hole as small as the size of their head. The Romans used ferrets to hunt rabbits. Ferrets have even been used to run wires and cables through large conduits. Now that's an interesting pet trick!
