It was all part of the ferret olympics in Eugene, Oregon.
Ferret owners brought their slinky pets to compete in five events.
In the plastic tube snake race, the ferrets had to wind their way through tiny plastic tubes.
Some contestants seemed a little unsure of the rules as they both try to squeeze through from different directions.
All of the money raised went to local ferret rescue groups.
