The spotted skunk

Post by Melissa, manager on Sun Oct 27, 2013 12:02 am

This is a spotted skunk, mostly famous for it's unique way of spraying.

 

Here is advice on how to avoid being sprayed by this particular species.

 The skunk first gives a warning by stamping its front paws. If the intruder pays no heed, the spotted skunk then stands stiff and struts around. It then stands on its front paws and waves its rear end in the air. After that, the skunk sprays its enemy. The musk can linger on the same spot for days. Most animals take the hint and stay away from the skunk after they've been sprayed once. Also, skunks can swim, but they swim only when their life is threatened.
