The kits were born on the 12th April 2012 to a first time mum. It was a large litter, 13 kits in total! They are born blind, deaf and totally dependant on their mum. They are covered in a fine white hair, their true colours will develop as time goes on. All they can really do is squeak at this point. Fun fact: newborn ferrets are small enough to fit on a teaspoon!
Want a look? I bet you do!
