Friday Fun: Gross Out!

The Siberian chipmunk has lots of enemies. Snakes. Hawks. Weasels. Foxes. They all think the chipmunk is deee-licious.

That would be bad news for some little critters. But the clever chipmunk knows how to stay safe. When it spots a dead snake, it bites into its enemy’s bladder. After the urine drains out, the chipmunk takes a bath in the pee.

Think the chipmunk is nuts? Think again. The snake’s strong scent keeps predators away.
