Spotted Skunk Skull - The Spotted Skunk is the only member of the skunk family that can climb. A nocturnal hunter, the spotted skunk is more active than other skunks. The spotted skunk is noted for the characteristic "handstand" stance it takes when threatened. Before spraying its opponent, this skunk rises up on its front legs and turns its head to watch as it sprays.

The frontal bones of spotted skunks are most often eroded by a nasal parasite (Skrajabingylus chitwoodorum) resulting in open lesions or gross deformation of the frontal region. This is unavoidable and therefore skulls with this malformation are still considered first quality.
