Will a ferret bite you?
A ferret may bite out of pain or in an effort to attract attention. It is typical for a ferret to nip your foot or ankle to say “Hey!” when you are occupied and it wants to play. I want something and I’m down here. In all likelihood, that is the only area of you that these tiny, small animals can access.
How many ferrets should I buy?
Ideally, there should only be up to four ferrets present, ideally littermates. Make sure all of the group’s ferrets have been neutered. Males that aren’t neutered could be more hostile.
Is a ferret a good pet to have?
A good pet, are ferrets? They are gregarious animals that are active, inquisitive, and fun-loving. This indicates that while they can make wonderful companions, they are not the easiest to manage and can bite forcefully if startled. They consequently don’t always make good pets for kids.
What happens if a ferret bites you?
Even if the wound does not appear to be deep or serious, germs can spread from ferret bites and scratches. If a ferret is unvaccinated and has come into contact with a rabid animal, the bite may get severely infected or transfer rabies. Ferret bites are particularly dangerous for young children.
