Video Title:
Black-Footed Ferret Kits Born at Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute
Description:
Mother’s Day was extra special for carnivore keepers at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) in Front Royal, Virginia, who welcomed the year’s first litter of black-footed ferret kits Sunday. Two-year-old female Potpie gave birth throughout the morning May 10 to six kits. Staff are closely monitoring their behaviors via a soundless black-and-white webcam, which is now live on the Zoo’s website. Virtual visitors can observe the family on this temporary platform until the kits become more active and venture out of the den, around 40 days old. Depending on where Potpie chooses to rest in her den, the kits may be more or less visible on the webcam.
