DENS, OCCUPIED—What is the reason the opening of a den where skunks inhabit on level ground is wet around the edges on frosty mornings? The grass is free from frost on cold mornings for a distance of about 3 inches from the mouth of the den.
The breathing of the animals and the warmth from their dens melts the frost at the entrance of the den and causes moisture. You can see the same thing if you sleep out in extreme cold weather. Your blanket will be wet on the outside when you rise in the morning.
