Habitat: Originally found throughout most of western Oklahoma.

Habits: Little is known about the very rare, endangered Black-footed Ferret. They are carnivores that eat mostly young prairie dogs, ground squirrels, and other small rodents. Black-footed Ferrets do not hibernate, and the four young born to a litter are raised by the mother. This species now is extinct in Oklahoma.
