    Two different types of mustelid. That's like asking what's the difference between an otter and a badger.

    Assuming you are asking about the "pet" ferret and not the endangered wild animal, the Black Footed ferret.

    They are closely related, both part of the same genus Mustela within the larger family Mustelidae.

    The major difference is that ferrets are completely domesticated and do not occur in the wild while weasels are wild animals.
