About Pest Animal Waco and Our Services:
Skunks are small to medium-sized mammals who live in tree hollows, most often far from urban on human-inhabited areas. Skunks vary in color depending on the type, and the color of their fur can range from light brown to gray and even black. In popular culture, Waco skunks are often presented with a long, white stripe at the middle of their back. However, the majority of types of Texas skunks don't have a white stripe that is noticeable to that degree. Skunk's head shape somewhat resembles a cat, as they have narrow faces with slightly pointed nozzles. Also, eyes in skunks are quite widely separated. Skunks are specific for their long, slim bodies and long, fluffy tales. However, the feature they are most famous for is their ability to spray their victims and use the unpleasant smell coming from their glands to defend themselves.
Skunks have all the usual features of wild Texas mammals. They walk on four legs and are equipped with sharp claws. Their teeth, though small, are very sharp, and they have a set of usual mammal sharp K9s. The head of the Waco skunk strongly resembles a cat, although the shape of their bodies is quite different. Unlike cats, the build of the skunks resembles more with a squirrel. Skunk's body is long and slim, with a long and fluffy tail. Underneath their tales, skunks have a gland that releases a substance of an intense and unpleasant smell. Each time a skunk is scared, it will raise its tail, pointing their gland into the object or an animal it is trying to affect. Then, the gland will release its content in a cloud of spray, that will often chase away opponents or predators.
Skunks normally mate during the spring. As the species itself is polygynous, one male will mate with multiple females. Once the females become pregnant, they will carry their babies for about 66 days, which is the length of the gestational period for Texas skunks. Skunk kits are very vulnerable right after they are born, and they need to stay close to their mother in order to survive. Their bodies are usually wet and covered with soft fur. While males have no part in taking care of the skunk kits, female skunks will stay next to their offspring up to a whole year following their birth. These types of Waco skunk families are called dens. Often, skunks den inside tree hollows. After a whole year has passed since the kits were born, they will move on to live independently.
