Skunks have their scent gland from the day they are born, and can spray when they are only 8 days old. Skunks will warn you when they are about to spray. First they face you with their tail in the air, then they stamp their front feet before turning their behind toward you and spraying.
The skunks scent gland mature in less than a month from birth. This allows them to expel a fine spray of fluid smelling liquid less than 4 weeks of age.
