The well known Stripped skunk is well known for its ability to produce a spray with a horrible scent. In a nutshell it can emit a stink bomb from up to 10 feet away. The horrible spray does not harm you but will take days to go away. A normal sized Striped skunk will have the same size as a house cat
A skunk typically lives in burrows and hollow logs but will make home out of any abandoned building it comes across. A lot of Florida residents come into contact with skunks after they have taken refuge in old dog houses and sheds. A female skunk gives birth from 2 to 10 babies each year.
