About the Striped Skunk
The striped skunk is a small, black and white weasel-like mammal that is native to Canada, the United States, and the northern parts of Mexico. It was formerly classified as a subfamily of the weasel family, however, it is now a part of its own family, Mephitidae, which includes both skunks and stink badgers. The striped skunk, (Mephitis mephitis) is usually what comes to mind when one thinks of a skunk.
The striped skunk is about the size of a house cat, with adults growing anywhere from 18-32 inches long, and weighing up to 12-13 pounds. They have black fur and a distinctive white “V” down the back, and a white stripe on their muzzle. However, the most identifiable characteristic of the skunk is its extremely strong and unpleasant odor, located in its two anal scent glands, which it emits whenever it feels threatened. Whenever a skunk is defending itself, it will raise its tail and perform a handstand just before spraying at their predator.
Other Skunk Species
