The striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis) is the most common species in Los Angeles, although the smaller spotted skunk (Spilogale putorius) can be a local problem around dwellings. The striped skunk is a house-cat sized animal (4 – 10 lbs.) that has long black fur with two variable broad white stripes down the back. The head is triangular; the tail is large and bushy. The strong musk characteristic of skunks is expelled from two scent glands near the anus.
