Pedegree (Feritage database)

"Benga" in Hungarian means "a big boy". Benga is a very nice hob. One of his great- grand-fathers was a Hungarian polecat. Benga is very friendly with people. And even during the time he’s in season he has never been aggressive. Benga has a very strong hunting instinct and always tries to catch everything that’s moving. He always protects his burrow and gives a gentle bite if somebody wants to check it out while Benga is there.

Benga likes long distance walks outside. Surprisingly he prefers long walks to digging the ground. He’s like a dog that can run a few kilometres with the owner and doesn’t get tired.

Besides long runs, another big love of Benga’s is water. He enjoys swimming or wading in the river, lake or swamp. And it does not matter to him if the water is cold.

Benga’s favourite way to explore the world is by standing on his hind legs.

When he gets bored he remembers his other hobbies like digging food out of the bowl or moving litter boxes.
