Predators beware! Skunks, such as the striped skunks living in the North American forests, come equipped with a foul-smelling liquid that can be sprayed up to ten feet away. Skunks forage at night in the forest looking for fruit, seeds, frogs, and mice to eat. They will run and hide from danger when they can. When a predator comes close a skunk will stomp its feet and lift its tail, preparing to defend itself. If the predator doesnt heed the warning signs, the skunk will let loose its putrid-smelling weapon.
