We all know we should not play with our food, but potatoes are not food for ferrets, who are obligate carnivores, so treating a potato like a toy seems to be a thing with ferrets. Or maybe it’s just the ferret penchant for carrying things off that makes potatoes interesting to ferrets.
Whatever the case, this little ferret spends the bulk of this video sizing up the potato opponent. The startle reaction at 53 seconds into the video is priceless. I can’t figure out if the ferret thought the potato disappeared or that it snuck up on him!
Will the ferret successfully carry off the potato? Oh the suspense!
