Snow Day? Teach Your Kids About the Zorrilla!

How can the world's smelliest animal be so cute?

Many schools are closed across the mid-Atlantic region today, so if you’ve got bored kids on your hands, teach them about the zorrilla, the animal known as the smelliest on Earth.

Zorrillas look a lot like a cross between a skunk and a ferret and are native to Africa.  Famed wildlife expert Jack Hanna appeared with a zorrilla on The Late Show with David Letterman last night and asked the talk show host to put the only zorrilla in the United States of America inside his shirt.  He did, to great comedic effect.
