    Fun fact about skunks: because their spray glands are so small and the liquid takes a couple weeks to remake, they are very stingy with it. It has to be a life or death situation to get them to sprat

This could be really stressfull for them. Even if they are fascinating, they are not your toys. Their place isn't on a tv show.

There's a tab on the top right(on mobile) that you can open and turn closed captioning on. Doesn't get all the translations right but it's enough to give you an idea of what they're talking about.

I don't think anyone could handle him as well as his owner does. It really is amazing how much Messi acts like a typical house cat. They'd be feeding him shrimp on the show instead of raw meat chunks:) that's his favorite. If you haven't seen any of the videos where they feed him shrimp, you should. Its too cute. You can tell his owners care a lot for him.

                                                                                          It's like they only know jokes about animals if they act like they are afraid of them...
