Reid Park Zoo welcomes two new ferrets to its education and community programs. 

Dimitri and Nadia will not be on exhibit, but will be new Education Ambassador Animals.

The public can have the opportunity to get up close and personal with these animals at the Conservative Learning Center. 

Ferrets are known as popular household pets. They have flexible bodies, are very curious and make great escape artists.

A zoo educator advises that if you plan on owning a ferret, do homework and prepare for how much attention they need.
