Skunks have a reputation for being smelly little animals, thanks to their ability to pray smelly liquid when they think they are in danger or as a reaction to a sudden sound, and in other situations.

Though most of us didn’t have the chance to meet a skunk from up close, the bare thought of it spraying us is scary and disgusting.

It might make you feel better to know that there are situations when skunks are unable to throw the scent. For example, they cannot bite and spray at the same time. That’s comforting, right?
