Uhh - a skunk!

At an Open Day at our neighbourhood vetclinic Yatzie and Moët (as well as I!) met a skunk for the first time. They were very curious when the skunk was in his cage but when it was close to them they found it a bit scary!


Some things you may not know about a skunk:

A skunk does not smell unless it needs to use its precious weapon - two glands with sulphur containing chemicals. The odor of the fluid is strong enough to ward off bears and other potential attackers. Skunks are reluctant to use this weapon, as they carry just enough of the chemical for five or six uses and require some ten days to produce another supply. In the wild they live 1-3 years but as a house pet they can live 10-15 years. They are cuddely!

Proudly also announcing that I was the lucky winner of a big bag of dog food by guessing the amount of kibbles in a jar. There were 369 and I guessed 370! Amazingly close!
