The striped skunk is a species of the genus Mephitis that is native to southern Canada, the United States and northern Mexico. It is currently listed as "least concern" by the IUCN on account of its wide range and ability to adapt to human-modified environments. It is a polygamous omnivore with few natural predators, save for birds of prey. The striped skunk has a long history of association with humans, having been trapped and captively bred for its fur and kept as an exotic pet. It is one of the most recognizable of North America's animals, and is a popular figure in cartoons and children's books.
