Kits up!

It's that time of year again as spotted skunk kits are starting to come above ground with the help of their mothers.  The photo below if from spotted skunk tracker Chuck Waggy in West Virginia and the female he has been following named Mary.  Incidentally, June 29th is the same day he saw spotted skunk kits for the first time last year.

Also, this past week in Florida, Clemson graduate student Stephen Harris captured this video of a skunk Mom cleaning her young kit and seeming to have a little trouble getting it down the burrow.
