Meet Leopold the skunk

Leopold the Skunk

He is Leopoldo a super sweet and lovely buddy. Every afternoon he goes out to look for flowers for his mother and on the way he also rummages around the neighborhoods to see if he can find a snack.

His favorite food is insects, although he can eat almost anything because he is an omnivorous animal.

He doesn’t have many friends, it’s just that few understand him because he’s very shy and when he gets angry or scared he doesn’t react very well. However, the friends they have love him as he is, with all his flaws and his many virtues. He is a stinky adorable skunk!!
