A keeper in our Conservation department captured this video of a couple of curious Black-footed ferrets at the Phoenix Zoo! The keeper had opened the door to their enclosure to get the ferrets ready for transport and the ferrets became very curious, although cautious, about what was going on. The hole in the middle of their enclosure leads to specially designed boxes for the ferrets to hang out and hide in, mimicking the burrows and tunnels they would use out in the wild!
