The difference between a black-footed ferret and a pet ferret is that Black-footed ferrets are the only ferret species native to North America and are a different species than ferrets kept as pets, which are from the European Polecat Ferret.

How do you know the difference between a European polecat and a domestic ferret?

Polecats and Ferrets are genetically very similar. The difference between a domestic ferret and a European polecat is that a ferret is the domestication of the Polecat and is a pet. Domestication has reduced the Ferrets ability to fend for themselves. Polecat Ferret hybrids do exist and are very difficult to distinguish from a true Polecat. The domestic ferret is smaller, and has a more fragile bone structure. A domestic ferret is usually lighter in color, and the mask does not reach the tinted neck band like it does with the European polecat. The European polecat has a rounder face. The back of the ears of a European polecat is dark, whereas it is light in the domestic ferret. European polecat jaws are much stronger than those of the domestic ferret. The European polecat is more muscular. The European polecat is a solitary animal and only meets in the mating season, while the ferret loves company.

What is the difference between a beaver and a muskrat?

Both live near and in water however a beaver is much larger than a muskrat. An adult beaver typically weighs between 40 and 60 pounds. An adult muskrat typically weighs only 2 to 5 pounds. While a beaver has a broad flat tail a muskrat has a thinner more ratlike tail. The muskrat tail actually has some flatness, but vertical like a boat rudder. Muskrats do not cut down trees. Muskrats and beaver are the only mammals that build their home in the water, but the muskrat lodge is smaller. They often dig dens into the bank; again the muskrat opening is smaller. Muskrats do not store food for the winter as beaver do and a harsh winter can greatly decrease a muskrat population. Muskrats are more prolific breeders capable of multiple litters in one season whereas beavers have one litter annually.
