It's Monday Marvels! Did you know? Dogs have a special gland that is located on their tail and that known as the supracaudal gland. Not to be confused with anal glands, the supracaudal gland, also, known as the tail gland or violet gland, isn't unique to dogs but can also be found in several other animals such as foxes, wolves, some European badgers and even the domestic cat.

The violet gland or supracaudal gland is a gland located on the upper surface of the tail of certain mammals, including European badgers and canids such as foxes, wolves, and the domestic dog, as well as the domestic cat. Like many other mammalian secretion glands, the violet gland consists of modified sweat glands and sebaceous glands.
