Although popularized in American Cartoons as females having a single stripe and males having two stripes, Hooded skunks (Mephitis macroura) may have one or two stripes, depending on the type. Striped skunks (Mephitis mephitis) have two stripes. Spotted skunks (Spilogale putorius) have interrupted stripes on their sides and backs. Hog-nosed skunks (Conepatus)typically have a single stripe, but this pattern varies.
