Instantly recognizable, striped skunks are known for their signature coloration and for their ability to emit a strong and pungent odor when upset.
Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. Urban Ecosystems. Few studies have investigated the ecology of urban striped skunks Mephitis mephitis despite their role as a primary rabies vector species paired with an ability to thrive in these landscapes. Information on home range, nightly movements, and habitat selection, is important for rabies management planning regarding the placement of oral rabies vaccine ORV baits and for management of skunk populations more generally. Our aim was to obtain baseline ecological information with an emphasis on spatial ecology of urban striped skunks in the Northern Great Plains region that is lacking in the literature. Female skunk home ranges varied by season with the largest home ranges detected during summer We found no evidence that use-availability was associated with habitat type or season among female skunks.
This animal. The striped skunk Mephitis mephitis is about the size of a cat, but has a stout body, a rather small head, short legs, and a bushy tail. Its small head fits conveniently, but sometimes too snugly, into enticing open jars. The thick, glossy fur is black, with a thin white stripe down the centre of the face and a broad white stripe beginning on the back of the head, forking at the shoulders and continuing as a white stripe along each side of the back to the base of the tail.
Albert R. A northern plains striped skunk that had for two years been a part of the skunk colony at the Vivarium, was in rut and on March 12, was bred to a northern plains striped male. From March 15 to 18, she was bred each day to the same male and on the 18th, was bred both morning and afternoon, but thereafter she was consistently antagonistic and attacked the male each time he was placed in her cage. Her copulatory period had extended over seven days. The following observations on parturition were made at close range, for the floor of the female's cage was approximately at shoulder level so that at no time were the observer's eyes more than one to three feet from her and yet she was not disturbed and seemed to pay no attention to his movements which consisted entirely of making notes
