Dundalk Wildlife Tip:
About skunks: appearance, biology, lifecycle, habitat, diet, behavior

What most people know about skunks is that they spray and the pungent smell spray takes almost forever to freshen up. However, there is much other than the spray. Skunks have a complete life. They mate, give birth, raise the young, feed; a complete life cycle. Here is all about skunks.


Just like every other animal, skunks have physical characteristics that define them. Different types of skunks have different characteristics too. Here are some of what you should expect in a skunk.

Body Size _skunks have different body sizes. They have an average body length of about 40 - 90cms.
Body Weight_ different skunks have different body size. The spotted skunk weights about 1.1lbs while the hog-nosed skunks' body weights 18lbs.
Their legs are short, well muscled, moderately elongated with long front claws for digging.
Most skunks have black and white. However, there are a species of skunks with brown or grey fur and a few with cream-colored fur.
All skunks have stripped bodies. Some have stripes only in their legs. Others have one single strip running from head to the tail on their backside. Still, in case of spotted skunks, they have numerous white spots and broken lines.


Skunks are mates with different female skunks in one mating season that is they are polygamous. Their breeding season usually runs from February all the way to march. The male are hardly involved in raising the young. He leaves soon after mating. The gestation period takes about 62- 68 days.

The female skunk give birth to about eight pups. This is usually in April or early June. The young are born without fur, helpless and blind. Their eyes open after about 20 days and they wean after an average of 6weeks.


Most skunks go for warm dark areas. The skunk occupies burrows previously dug by other animals or they may excavate their own. Some of these places that they may habit include:


Due to human encroachment, skunks have found living in urban areas perfect too.


Skunks are omnivores. They feed on small rodents, insects and seasonal fruits. They hunt to about one mile. However, the male may go hunting for over four miles. They also feed on ground birds' eggs and nestlings.

Skunks also love turtle eggs, Japanese and beetles, garbage and any pet food left outside.


Skunks are nocturnal animals; they sleep during the day and hunt at night. It is easy to know when they are out hunting. They spray frequently to real or imagined danger.

During winters, the skunks may remain in their den until it is over.


There is much behind a skunk other than its spraying nature and burrowing your yard. The skunks have a life and a way of living too.
