End of Year Sale: Price is 40% off. The spotted skunk is easy to identify. It is much smaller than other species and has spots instead of stripes. It is is most common in rocky, riparian canyons, and seems to prefer areas with thick vegetation. All skunks are omnivores and opportunistic feeders. The spotted skunk is the only one able to climb trees, greatly expanding its foraging opportunities. The only major predator for skunks are great horned owls, which have no sense of smell. For other animals determined to harass a skunk, they give plenty of warning of their intent to spray, stamping their feet, and in the case of the spotted skunk, doing a handstand before spraying.
