Created By: Wholly H2O


Look out for the striped skunk along your path. It's an adaptable watershed resident that does well in human environments. Though they eat a variety of plants and animals, their diet consists mostly of insects. Lawns and landscaped areas provide them with foraging areas for beetles and grubs, and they are one of the primary predators of honeybees. Their thick fur protects them from bee stings and their spraying protects them from any suspecting predator.
