The Striped Skunk is the most common skunk in North America, Like all skunks,they have a natural defense system. Equipped with two glands at the base of their tail,they are able to defend themselves against most predators. After giving an intruder ample warning, a skunk is able to spray a sulphuric-smelling musk,which aimed accurately,is able to cause intense pain & temporary blindness! Skunk musk is also oily & extremely difficult to remove.This natural defense system enables the skunk to ward off with confidence most who dare to challenge them!
