Hi Maureen
To funny....I bought a new baby ferret 3 months ago and she
was a lot younger than my other two....she does the exact same thing
as yours does...she seems to have energy that never ends..also she
use to bite quite a bit herself but she has calmed down alot as she
gets older. She still enjoys flipping and flopping all over the place
and even throws her stuffed animal around. I think it is quite normal
for babies to be a bit more active than older ferrets.
