About Skunks
Skunks use a highly odoriferous secretion to deter predators.
A skunks secretion is stored in two walnut sized glands with openings in the anus. When the skunk is alarmed or attacked, it can direct this spray several feet. At high concentrations the secretion causes nausea and retching and will act like tear gas if the liquid gets in the eyes.
