Pet skunk

A pet skunk is a skunk kept by humans for companionship and enjoyment.

Although capable of living indoors with humans similarly to dogs or cats, pet skunks are relatively rare, partly due to restrictive laws and the complexity of their care.

Skunks are probably best known for their ability to spray foul-smelling fluid as a defense against predators.
