more KU wildlife

You know how last night I saw a baby fox? Well, tonight I was heading home and saw two little skunks right out in front of Wescoe Hall! They're so cute: Their butts waggle from side to side and their tails jiggle and their little legs blur like weiner-dogs as they run away. Not very fast, but that tail-in-the-air attitude probably prevents most predators from following. Experienced ones, anyhoo.

One regularly sees skinks (shiny lizards) and wild kitties here, too. I love that KU is essentially a wildlife refuge.
