What would you like to do?
they don't have one!
it varies. skunks can have different colors: black, white (even if not albino), lavender, brown, black and white, brown and white, etc... striped skunks have a long stri…pe going through their back. spotted skunks aren't spotted, but more like having many short stripes. hog-nosed skunks differs within the group, but known to have thick stripe that covers most of their back

Last nite, July 31st, 2008, a skunk pooped in my courtyard around 4:00am. I went out after sunrise to pick it up. I WAS SO SURPRISED at the amount of worms in his/her po…op. I would say that the poop was comprised of 60% worms and 40% food. The best way that I can describe it is that it looked like a white and black rice ball. I felt badly for the little guy. Does anyone know if this is normal? Or should I be concerned about my outside domesticated cats? Or if my dog got hold of any poop in the yard?
Why don't you stick your head up its butt to find out.
Skunks like raw meats,veggies,low fat yoghurt,raw eggs,nuts,they need loads of protein for body fat in order to keep warm during winter months.
If it is a direct close range strike, It will look like a dirty yellow. My dog (Siberian husky) has attacked 2 skunks so far and the first time he was shot in the face, mouth,… and eye area 12 times. The worst thing is it was the dead of winter, and I was 7 months pregnant! If you are reading this, then you probably need to break out your hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and Dove Dish soap! If you have a dog then keep a supply of those Items on hand at all times!!!
Yes it is
black with a white stripe down the back
Skunk is a cultivated type of wed obtained by selection. Therefore there is no such ting as wild skunk. Skunk buds are big, very dense and smell like toasted coffee.
Squirrels and Chipmunks are related and look similar to skunks.
My cat got sprayed last nite, I don't know why but it was only on one of his front legs and especially on his paw (probably stuck his paw in a skunk's lair......) anyway… the spray itself or liquid is a dark golden yellow, consistency of motor oil. Because it was late and I did not have the peroxide on hand we ran the shower (hand held) over and over on his leg......yeah that was fun! Then I took a washcloth and soaked his eyes as they were watering alot (that smell is just disgusting for humans, imagine a cat whose sense of smell is far greater than ours, no wonder his eyes were watering, I was gaging myself!). Today I will go get the peroxide and concoct the potion to clean his paw and legs. Now my basement (that is where he stayed all nite) smells skunky, so off I go to get some air sponge and hope that the smell goes away, it seems less this morning....or maybe I am getting used to it :o)
