With Ben's passing, Buttercup inherited the position of eldest and dominant ferret. Charlie, the new wild man, as a male the biggest ferret of the group, gave Buttercup a strong challenge for leadership. Here Buttercup (left) and Charlie (right) face off.
This image dates from November 1997 when Charlie was 4 months old and Buttercup about 3 3/4 years old. It was taken in the ferret playroom. You can see a piece of clear dryer hose to the left.
