Striped Skunk

Skunks are obviously known for their spray which can cause humans to be scared when they encounter one but skunks don't go around just spraying people, they will only spray humans if they feel threatened. Their spray comes from two scent glands next to their anus and can spray up to 10 feet. Striped skunks are the most commonly found skunk in Orange County, we also have spotted skunks that are less common. Skunks have poor vision and rely heavily on smell. They typically will come out from their dens after sunset to forage. During spring and summer, you might find a mother with her kits. Their diet consists of bugs, nuts, berries, and occasionally small rodents. You will likely find them in any wilderness areas or in many park within urban cities
