When a ferret is amused, frisky and playful they will do a "dance of joy" in which they will leap in the air, jump, twist and turn. It is also an indication that your ferret is feeling well.

Are ferrets Hyper?

It depends on how old the ferret is...Young Ferret: Young ferrets are more hyper than older ferrets. Young ferrets sleep a lot, but when let out of the cage, they jump around and like to get into things. Despite being so hyper, ferrets are best trained to stay calm when they're young. Encouraging ferrets to be held at a young age usually makes older ferrets more content with being held.Old Ferret: Older ferrets can still be hyper, but if at taught at a young age, can happily cuddle and even sleep in your arms.

Is it normal for ferrets to jump on each other during weasel war dances?

It's part of the ferrets playing. A ferret doing the weasel war dance has the tendency to jump or bump into anything without regard to what's around them.
