They are cute. My back yard neighbors had "rescue" ferrets and sometimes let them run around in the yard. It drove my beagle crazy!

I've been considering getting a ferret but I'm not paying $200 for one.

I dont like them their sneeky and dirty
[@486083,missbeez] They aren't dirty if you care for them. My dog had two pet ferrets for a few years, they played and slept together, and even bathed together.
They played whack a weasel under the front edge of the couch, it was hilarious and adorable, and he missed them a lot when they moved away.😢

I guess a $100
If you are paying top dollar, make sure you get a young one. Keep in mind that they can rack up quite a grocery bill.
Yes, if I wanted a healthy pet of an exotic nature, I would pay $200.

In the UK they go for about £10/$13

I've seen them for $80. I wouldn't get one though.

They're used for chasing rabbits out of their burrows here and cost nowhere near that.

[@1168721,newjerseyman] No in the UK, they cost the same as a few beers here.

It’s illegal to own one in my state. But they look adorable.

[@328496,bijouxbroussard] I picked one up once, it nearly chewed my finger off 😦

The reason they want so much for them in the U.S is because they're not native species.
They have to be imported.

There are said to be breeding programmes going on in the U.S and i suspect you'd have to buy and keep one like you would any other 'exotic' animal
