Mammal Monday -- Black Footed Ferrets!

A common myth about the Endangered Species Act is that, once they're listed, species never come off the list.  Thanks to the efforts of folks at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Smithsonian Institution, the black footed ferret may someday prove the myth wrong, just like the brown pelican, bald eagle, and American alligator have done before!  Black footed ferrets are a top predator in the North American prairie that feeds on prairie dogs.  Check out this video to learn more about black footed ferret recovery and reintroduction:
