Marbled Polecat

We just learned about the Greater Grison.

Another animal in the same family is the Marbled Polecat, also called Vormela Peregusna.

These animals look a little funny.
They have a black and white face sort of like a badger, but their body is a brown, orange or yellow with black spots on it.
Marbled Polecats grow to be about 30 centimeters long, and weigh about 500 grams.

Sometimes when these little animals get scared they can let out a very stinky smell to tell predators to stay away!
Sort of like a skunk, but they don't spray it up into the air.
