The endangered black-footed ferret is a member of the weasel family. It is the only ferret native to North America (the domestic ferret is a different species of European origin and has been domesticated for hundreds of years), and has a tan body with black legs and feet, a black tip on the tail and a black mask. It has short legs with large front paws and claws developed for digging. Its large skull and strong jaw and teeth are adapted for eating meat.
