Playful Critters
Did You Know?
Minks have powerful scent glands which are discharged when they are frightened. The smelliest British carnivore is probably the polecat (it used to be known as the foumart, short for foul marten)

Have some ottery fun!

Otters are fun-loving creatures, one of the few kinds of animals that continue to enjoy playing right into adulthood. They love sliding down snowy banks, chasing each other and even juggling with pebbles.
