“Oh, it’s okay. He can call me a flower if he wants. I don’t mind.”
– Flower arrangement for skunks, Bambi (1942)
Skunks are mammals native to North and South America, unlike hedgehogs, which are not native to the Americas. They are easy to recognize due to their deep black and white color. However, they are best known for their ability to spray pungent-smelling liquids from glands located beneath their tails, which they use to repel predators.
Skunk got its name from a Native American word meaning “to pee”. This is a misnomer because the spray is not urine but a combination of chemicals containing sulfur. Despite their bad reputation, skunks are still kept as pets in seventeen states of the United States and Great Britain. Many pet skunks never learn to spray, and even those pose no threat unless frightened.
Several fictional skunks have become famous thanks to animated cartoons. These include Pepe Le Pew from Looney Tunes, Bambi’s Flower and Stella from Over the Hedge. These characters are often marked by their unpleasant smell.
Do you know? Not all skunks have stripes. Instead, several species were discovered. Captive skunks can come in interesting color patterns, including striped brown, smoky gray, or even solid white.
