The skunk is a small predatory animal with a characteristic black and white coat which mostly lives on the American continent. When in danger, skunks bare their teeth, stomp the ground and then emit a foul-smelling secretion. They stick their tails straight up and aim for their attackers. Skunks hunt at dusk and at night. Their diet consists of small mammals, snakes and lizards.
