Subject: Morbid questions

All of the questions refer to normal house temperatures (68-74).

When a ferret dies, how long before the body becomes ice cold? Is this
before or after rigor sets in?

How long before rigor sets in?

How long before they come out of rigor?

Then do they go back in and if so how long before?

Answers to these questions may help us with time frames on deaths when we
are not home with the little ones.

Hugs to all. tle
