Next-Door Nature

DO skunks spray other skunks?? Inquiring minds need to know!

Luckily, Dr. Kieran Lindsey has the answers! Dr. Lindsey is an urban wildlife biologist and current lecturer at Virginia Tech College of Natural Resources. She actually co-authored the textbook of my Urban Wildlife Management class at Texas A&M, along with the professor who taught the class, Dr. Clark Adams.

Sidenote: The textbook, Urban Wildlife Management, is a wonderful resource. It is very informative and I think it's a must-have for anyone who is genuinely interested in the realities of urban wildlife.

In any case, Dr. Lindsey also co-authors this amazing wildlife blog! Even if you just want to look at some great wildlife photos, definitely check out Next-Door Nature.

And yes, skunks DO spray other skunks. Find out why here. And thanks to Bonnie for telling us about this!
