Along these lines, last night I was taking a quiz
in the latest issue of Ferrets magazine
(September/October). It is called What's Your
Ferret IQ? and is a series of 50 questions, some
True/False and some multiple choice. One of the
T/F questions was "Cheerios and finely chopped
fruits and vegetables make fine ferret treats". I
answered False and I was wrong, according to the
magazine. Their answer said "Sugar- and salt-free
Cheerios (only about 4-5) as well as small amounts
of finely chopped melon, banana, cucumber and
broccoli are good ferret treats".

I don't think that "wrong" answer counts. So,
other than that, I only missed one! It was a
question about the number of teeth ferret have.
