How is STOMP Skunk Food different from kibble?
Kibble is hard. Skunks have less teeth than dogs do and the kibble takes up a larger surface area in the skunk’s mouth. There largest molar is about the diameter of the eraser end of a pencil. Forcing them to crush a hard food will damage their teeth which is painful and may lead to other health conditions. STOMP is firm but not hard like kibble. It is larger than kibble and will help keep the teeth clean.
