How long do ferrets live?



  1. 0 Votes

    Ferrets tend to live about 5 to 7 years old. They can live up to 12, but that is  rare because ferrets are considered to be in a geriatric phase from about 3 years of age onward and are prone to endocrine gland disease and cancer. Debates abound as to whether these diseases are related to bad breeding, bad diets or early neutering, but either way, if you’re thinking of getting a ferret, research into their origins may warrant a longer lived companion.
