WHAT IS THE SKUNK?


Skunks are more of a pest then anything else. Their bad smell actually comes from their Urine and is used to scare off everything except other skunks. Skunks are often attracted to residential areas by the availability of food, water and shelter. They can be encouraged to leave by reducing or eliminating these attractants.



You should never approach a skunk as they are easily frightened and can stink you up fairly badly. Skunks just like racoons are attracted to garbage as they like to chew through scraps and leftover foods that are left outside for them. They are also attracted to fruits and vegetables planted in the backyard garden. They are also related to the weasel, ferret, and mink. All of which belong to the Mustelidae family.

Skunks usually breed in the spring, from February to May. A second mating may occur later, if the skunk did not find a mate, or fails to impregnate. Young are usually born in May or June, with the average litter being 5 to 8 babies. Young are weaned at 8 weeks and typically, stay with the mother until they are 2 to 4 months old. Some juveniles will stay with their mothers or siblings until the following spring. Skunks are usually nocturnal, coming out well after dark. Enemies include the Great horned owl, Fox, Coyote, and Badger. When angered skunks stamp their feet, hiss, and growl. Skunks don't usually spray in a fight with each other. It seems that skunks don't care much for the strong scent them selves. It is mostly used for defense. Two glands under the tail, generate the strong smelling musk. They stand on their front paws, tail against their backs as they face their victim to spray with a mist or stream.Up to 3 meters (10 ft ) they are very accurate, But can reach nearly 5 meters (16 ft) At that distance the accuracy suffers greatly.
