(reintroduced) Where they live What they look like The black-footed ferret looks like the common ferret in color-has a black mask across the eyes -brownish black markings on the feet and on the tail -It weighs 2 pounds or less-Its body length is 1520 inches -Has a 46-inch (1115-centimeter) tail-The males are a lot bigger than the females-Mammalia,Carnivora The black-footed ferret lives in grass and a prairie habitat. Also they live abandoned prairie dog holes. What they eat and what eats them The Black Footed Ferret Owel The Black-footed ferret is a specialized eater because they basically only eat prairie dogs. Other than that they eat..... -small birds -insects -small mammals. -are nocturnal hunters. -is a predator / prey. what eats The Black-Footed ferret.....-Great-horned owls, -eagles -coyotes The Black-Footed Ferret limits the prairie dog population and with out it the prairie dog population would increases dramatically. Behavior/ reproduction -their gestation period is 41-45 days-Births occur in May and June-Three kits(babies) are the norm, but litters range from one to six.-Lives in prairie dog holes-females raise the young until they are 70 days old -doesn't mate for life- black-footed ferrets live alone except during the breeding season in March and April. Grass The prairie dog Why is it indangerd What is being done to help -Farmers use poison to start diseases and kill the prairie dogs chopping up the population of prairie dogs and ferrets with it. -That makes it harder for the ferret population to reproduce.-The populations eventually died out. -when a ferret eats an infected prairie dog it then become infected itself killing the ferret to. -there were two plague that spread through the community . Wildlife service started by taking black-footed ferrets to animal sanctuary with a high population of prairie dogs. Although there has been many attempts like this the prairie dog population is still quite small even in the sanctuaries. I believe that we need to start to grow the population in the wild by not killing the prairie dogs with things that can also hurt the black-footed ferret. This would start to grow the population and then allow for more reproduction which would help the population significantly.
