Skunks

Do skunks hibernate?

Skunks, like bears, go into a state of torpor. This is a very groggy sleep that is intermittent and can be interrupted by periods of time awake and active. Hibernation is a physical state where the body significantly drops in temperature and the creature is immobile for a very long time. A hibernating animal almost looks dead and takes a very long time to wake up. An animal in torpor can be woken more easily, which is why it isn't safe to disturb bears who are in torpor sleep for the winter. Skunks take long torpor naps in their dens, and females often in groups. They will wake to look for food on warm days, and will need to come out of the den at least once to empty their scent glands.

This would explain why folks sometimes see, or smell, skunks during the winter months.

Mammals

What is a full description of a mammal?

Mammals are a class of vertebrates (have a backbone) characterized by warm-blood, hairy bodies, a four-chambered heart, a single jaw bone, sweat glands and - in females - mammary glands for suckling young, middle ear bones and a neocortex (outer layer of the brain).

The mammary glands are modified sweat glands.


Some mammals, such as naked mole rats and whales have lost some or all of their hair. Almost all mammals give birth to live young, but there are a few that lay eggs. These are known as monotremes, and include the platypus


There are more than 4,000 different species of mammals. Mammals range in size from the 30–40 mm (1.2–1.6 in) bumblebee bat to the 33-meter (108 ft) blue whale.

Where do squirrels live?

Squirrels are members of the order Rodentia and comprise 50 genera and 273 species that are spread worldwide.

Tree squirrels live mostly in tree nests called dreys, which they build high in the forks of trees. Drays are approximately the size of a football and are made of twigs, leaves or pine needles or grass. Shredded grasses, fresh leaves, moss, and lichens are used to line the inside of the nest. Sometimes tree squirrels may make their nests in a hollow trunk, inhabit a permanent tree den, or take over a rook's nest, constructing a roof over it. Red squirrels in some areas also nest in middens in the ground.

Ground squirrels (like prairie dogs and chipmunks) create underground tunnel systems called burrows, often with multiple entrances and chambers. Some ground squirrels use rocks and shrubs to hide burrow entrances. Ground squirrels use similar materials as tree squirrels to line the subsoil sleeping chambers. Many of the ground dwellers become dormant in winter (hibernate) or summer (estivate).

Most species are primarily vegetarian and are fond of seeds and nuts; some eat insects or supplement their diet with animal protein.
you can usually see them in trees or even running around in the woods. If you want to see one you better go somewhere that is not close to sound, away from any habitation and away from a big lake. You can certainly see them near nut trees.
