Striped Skunks are easily identified by the pattern of black and white stripes in their fur. They often have a thin white stripe that runs down their forehead to the nose. They have a bushy black and white tail, short ears, and a triangular-shaped head. If they perceive a threat, the Skunk will enact a warning display by stomping their feet and arching their back with a raised tail. If they still feel threatened, they will then spray.
