Subject: Is this normal or a problem sign???

I've had 7 ferrets over the past 10 years and only 1 ever did
this. From the time I got him he would suddenly stop while
out playing and running around, completely flatten out his
body with all 4 legs spread out, and just lie there for a few
minutes. The first time he did it was a week or so after I
got him. I thought something was wrong but when I went to
grab him he jumped up and started playing again. He repeated
the action on a daily basis. None of my others ever did this.
Has anyone else had a ferret like this or is it a sign of
somethings wrong??
