    So this one doesn't exist ;)
    Exotic pet store owner informed me it is at least illegal to sell them in PA and she thinks they might just plain be illegal. She has one from pre-ban. Turns out skunks, groundhogs, foxes, squirrels, and raccoons are just some of the other banned animals here. Cause they aren't domesticated, Ruby sure looks to be going wild huh?

    Yeah ran into the same laws when I lived in Alabama. But I had a racoon and a few skunks. I had the racoon because I accidentally ran over its mom and didn't mean to. So stopped and I saw a few other babies so took them in. Was real tiny baby and botle fed it. Game warden who lived next door knew about it and informed me of the law but didn't do anything (small town). Good little critter, sure do miss him.

    The lady at the pet store said she had 7 or 9 skunks at one point. 2 of which were not descented. Never had a problem. I'd like to get a coon and a squirrel. Someday, hopefully legally.

    Ressy Joe is right, thats an urban legend or myth or whatever you want to call it. All she can do is make them stand up and all that is, is she makes her hair stand on end like a cat when its pissed.

    Arizona Tea. Can't say I've seen a giant bottle of root beer before. There are plenty of good root and birch beers in PA though, and I mean WAY better than A&W or Barqs.

    can you get "A-Treat" there? my Aunt and Uncle used to bring a few cases back every time they went to NJ. awesome stuff. the bottle almost looks like a 32oz IBC Root Beer bottle. we used to get the 12oz bottles, and go cruisin with them. we got chicks, cuz we had "beer"

    haha. I know IBC, good stuff, can't say I've seen a 32 oz one. We have A-Treat back home, haven't seen it out here in Blairsville. But I haven't been looking at soda, don't drink it often. People used to ask me all the time if I was drinking beer on the job when I worked at the gas station. We sold Hanks Root Beer, that stuff was awesome and came in the brown bottle.
