No, los mapaches no huelen mal. Es los mofetas mapurritos y zorrillas que apestan.

La zorra nunca vé su cola

I agree.

Skunk = zorrillo = mofeta

Mapache = raccoon.


When someone has dark circles around the eyes, we say "tienes ojos de mapache".

Groundhog?

Does anyone remember how to say that?

Also, speaking of "m" words... there is a word used in Puerto Rico for "cold" instead of gripe or resfriado.

Does anyone know/remember what it is?

It's driving me nuts that I forgot it and I can't find it in any dictionary.

thanks,

marsopa
