A horrible disease usually found in skunks and bats. the disease causes the infected animal horrible pain, and eventually, if the animal has hair, it will go bald. Animals with rabies do not foam from the mouth, but instead they continuously drool. The disease affects the animal by attacking and destroying the nervous system of the infected animal.
rabies can be spread through spit. often, when an animal is toward the end of its life with rabies it will attack any living thing it sees, spreading rabies more. if a human contracts rabies, they are given a huge, painful shot for six days during the 14 day incubation period.
you can tell if nocturnal animals have rabies because they will be out during the day because they can't sleep due to the pain they are experiencing.
if a skunk has rabies, it will lose its fur and you can see that it's tail is just a rod like thing.
