Skunks are famous for their unique black white marking from head to tail and their special foul smelling launch able defense mechanism. Skunks are very quiet animals that do not wish to be scared and only use their defenses when they feel a definite threat. Back during my Boy Scouts Days in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in Nelson County quite often a skunk would enter a tent area late at night (nocturnal) and all campers would simply observe the skunk quietly. The skunk not feeling threatened would look for food and upon not finding any would then depart. Skunks are fine unless threatened that is why so often dogs catch the wrong end of a skunk and tomato juice baths seem to be the only limited remedy. Skunks use their claws to dig up insects, worms and roots. Skunks have also been know to live on small rodents and fruits. Skunks are found in the Americas, North, Central and South. Skunks are very adaptable to wherever the right circumstances help them to survive. For that reason they can be found in forests, suburbs and even in cities. Skunks have been used in cartoon caricatures with the most famous the famous "Peppy LePew" from Looney Tunes.
