A Ferret's Victory Dance

Whenever ferrets get excited, they hop sideways and backwards, engaging in what is called the weasel war dance. They usually do the dance after capturing a toy or stolen object successfully. While they arch their back and sometimes make hissing noises during the dance, they are only showing excitement, not fear or anger. Watch the video below to see an example of two ferrets dancing away!
