★ Skunks use chemicals called thiols to create a potent smell that repels attack from potential predators. A skunk has two anal glands that carry the spray material.These glands carry limited amount, enough to spray 5 to 8 times. Afterwards, the skunk needs sometimes over a week to reload the glands.

★ Skunks release their spray from an area below their tails and can spray a target from a distance of ten feet!

★ Aside from being smelly, the spray can cause sick feelings like headaches, burning in the eyes, or throwing up, and the yucky smell that comes with it can be hard to get rid of.

★ It always warns before spraying: it turns its back to the target, hisses, and stumps its feet.

★ However, They're not stinky all the time, only when they're under threat.
