Mephitis mephitis One of a family of four, out on an evening forage.
Ah,beautiful baby..;-))Does Asker like this animal?!
No, he doesn't know about these, and I intend to keep it that way. These are the animals with the incredibly bad smell. Perhaps you've seen them on nature television shows. Thanks for the Yves Saint Laurent.
In case you haven't seen such a nature show, the story typically goes like this: The star of the show is a bear cub, who is following his mother to learn the ways of the wilderness. The cub gets separated from his mom. Next we see a skunk waddling along the forest trail. The cub is curious and puts its nose too close to the skunk. The skunk raises its tail and sprays the cub with the odor. The cub runs back to its mom, rubbing his head on the ground. Mom says "Go jump in the river." This doesn't help; the cub smells bad for a week.
;-)))Smells ,but cute...))
Exactly right. Admire from a distance.
Sehr hübsch, aber ich würde trotzdem Abstand halten! Tolle Aufnahme!
Das ist eine gute Idee, Catrin. Danke.
Argh! A skunk sprayed under our house when I was a child. We had to move out for two weeks, throw out our food, and the smell was still there for a long time after. Of course, being a kid, I thought this was an big adventure - but the smell made our eyes water. ;o
Wow. What an adventure. Something to remember and tell your grandkids.
