Mephitidae

Skunks & Stink Badgers

The family Mephitidae, recently split from the family Mustelidae, consists of twelve species of skunks found in North America, South America and Asia. Skunks, when threatened, can spray a noxious odor that will cause respiratory irritation, nausea, and burning of the eyes. This effective defense causes potential predators to think twice about dining on members of this family. Nature has provided skunks with contrasting black and white warning colors. After a predator first encounters a skunk, these warning colors help prevent future unpleasant encounters. All Mephitidae belong to the Order Carnivora.
