Subject: Behavior question

This question really does not have to do with health, I hope it is ok
that I post it here.
My Nushi who is 3 months does this odd thing where he had a favorite
stuffed animal, which is shaped like a ball. He will put it between
his front paws, and "scoot" backwards with it. He will do this all
aroung my living room and sometimes he will just go in circles. He
also does this for LONG periods of time, 1 hr. or so, the whole time
just scooting backwards. If he runs into a wall, he will just turn a
different direction and continue scooting.
It is so funny to watch, yet I am very curious as to why he does
this, my other ferrets have never showed this type of behavior. Does
anyone else here have ferrets that do this?
Thank you,
