Cody, the domestic ferret from the Abilene Zoo stopped by the studio, and almost took a tumble off our table.
According to Zoo Curator, Joy Harsh, having a ferret as a household pet takes a special kind of family.
"This is definitely not a type of pet if you can not devote the time to them," says Harsh, "they are very active."
Harsh says ferrets are also prone to health problems and can often have a "special" odor thanks to their close relative, the skunk.
In the wild, ferrets are most commonly found in North America and are known to hunt prairie dogs.
"They're designed to go into tunnels," says Harsh, thanks to their long, lanky bodies.
You can view the domestic ferret at the Abilene Zoo on Zoo Lane Any day of the week, between 9am to 5pm. Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, and $2.50 for children between the ages of 3-12. All children under 3 are free.
