Whole, or un-fixed female ferrets are known as Jills. Whole males are Hobs. Fixed male ferrets are called Gibs.
5. What is a group of ferrets called (A Pride of Lions, a -blank- of ferrets.)?

Answer: Business

If you have ever seen more than one ferret together, you will know why this is often pronounced 'Busy-ness' by ferret lovers.
6. Which of the following is NOT accepted color terminology for the domestic ferret (This question utilizes the American Ferret Association's color chart.)?

Answer: Golden

The AFA's excepted color chart includes the following colors: Albino, Black, Black Sable, Champaigne, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Dark-Eyed White, and Sable. Every once in a while you might run into a silver, usually silver sable ferret.
7. Which of the following is NOT an accepted marking terminology for the domestic ferret (Again, I am using the AFA color chart.)?

Answer: Spotted

A Blaze has a white stripe running from the mask, between the ears to the shoulders. A Panda has a white head, including the neck and throat. Mitts are white feet or toes.
8. What is a baby domestic ferret, either gender, called?

Answer: Kit

What can I say about Kits? They are one of the cutest things on the planet.
9. What is the life span of the domestic ferret?

Answer: 6-10 Years

The ferret's average life span is 6-10 years. However, unless well cared-for, most ferrets will get into trouble far before their natural life would have ended. Because of their natural curiosity and fearlessness, and because they are small and like to snuggle in blankets, couches, etc., they can be prone to accidents.
10. Which of the following is NOT true of proper captive ferret care?

Answer: Ferrets are too stupid to learn tricks.

Ferrets are perhaps more intelligent than either cats or dogs, and can be taught tricks. However, because their attention span is often somewhat limited, and whose wouldn't be with so many things to do, see, smell, and play with, they may not always be interested in performing those tricks.
