Abstract

The skunk is a small, fur bearing, carniverous, nocturnal mammal belonging to the weasel family (Mustelidae). It is easily recognized by its black and white color and noted for its strong scent. There are four species of skunks in North America, only two of these are present in the Midwest, the striped skunk and the spotted skunk. The other two, the hooded and the hognose skunk, are found in the southwest. The striped skunk is the favorite as a pet.
