SUPER WOW!!!! We were blown away by your puma experience. Certainly once in a lifetime, you'll be talking about that for years to come. Sorry skunk, you've been trumped!

Know what you mean about getting back into the wilds. Envious you are still in Patagonia. I can feel a third trip coming on haha!

Hog nosed skunk. Really neat, though overly aromatic critters.
