I love seeing wildlife…

… and the other day I saw a white skunk.

No, sadly that is not my picture, but this little guy looks just like the one I saw.  It was just ambling around in my front yard, digging and munching on whatever it found.

I stood and watched it out my window for a long time.  Too far away to get a decent photo through my window and if I’d tried to go out on the porch Koda would have gone nuts.

I really didn’t want to scare it off, though I also don’t want it to actually “live” near my house (though it probably already does).

It’s pretty difficult to find info about the white skunk (THE ANIMAL) online, but I was lucky to find the above picture.  I don’t think they’re super rare, but not your average little skunk either.  In any case, I felt really blessed that God allowed me to see such a beautiful creature – and so close to my house.

    I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a white skunk. How cool is that??

      I didn’t either Jodie, until I saw the one in my yard. A google search yielded info that said they’re not really unusual (are to me). I’ll keep my distance, but he (or she) was surely beautiful.

    Ooh, I don’t think I even knew there WERE white skunks! I think even the black and white ones are quite charming, but this white fella is SUPER cute! But yeah, I wouldn’t venture too close if I were you 🙂

    It’s always so magical to me when I get to see different creature up close. There’s chipmunks in my yard now, and because of the way part of the apartment is set into the ground, sometimes I see one right outside my bedroom window. I keep meaning to leave some little chipmunk goodies there to keep them coming back 🙂

      Well, I didn’t know there were white skunks either – imagine seeing one up close and personal. I was amazed when I found the info online – and apparently they aren’t that terribly rare. He (or she) was just gorgeous – but I’ll definitely keep my distance.

      I LOVE chipmunks too. They are adorable. Chipmunk goodies – not sure what that would be, but bet you could find out.
