You don’t want to run into this animal rear-end first. Skunks are well-known for their ability to spray people or animals for protection. These black and white stinkers weigh roughly 10 pounds and are about 1-2 feet in length. Skunks have an excellent sense of smell and hearing. However, skunks have very poor vision. Skunks are omnivores that mainly eat insects, worms, berries, mice, and eggs. They are also very body-heavy making them very slow-moving animals.
