Black-footed ferret Potpie gave birth to six kits May 10, 2020. Keepers use this webcam to monitor the group and make sure they are healthy. Each kit is a huge step in saving this endangered species.
Black-footed ferrets are North America's only native ferret species and were once thought to be extinct. Thanks to breeding and reintroduction programs, they have made an incredible recovery. Stay tuned to the cam streaming live from the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia, for all the ferret action. Please note that this webcam has no sound and appears black and white because it is dark inside the den.
