Striped Skunk
Mephitis mephitis
Oak Ridge, TN

I was so excited to finally get a photo of a skunk! A friend called me and said he had one that came into his yard each evening, so I was able to snap a few shots before this guy ambled off into the woods. Skunks are beautiful animals and they are very inquisitive. They are omnivores and eat a variety of foods. Often they leave signs of their nocturnal hunting when they dig for grubs in the grass.
