The size of a cat or smaller with long fur and bushy tails, skunks are easily identified by their distinctive black and white coloration. These near-sighted omnivores have a hearty appetite for grubs and insect pests, and have also been known to consume mice and small rats.

The Smell of Skunks The smell of skunks has been compared to burnt rubber. I describe the skunk smell as a VERY bitter smell. It was not what I had expected when my dog came to me, sprayed.
