About the Striped Skunk (Mephitis mephitis)

Skunks are great foragers, found in highly populated areas all over the US, Mexico, and Canada. Their diet consists mostly of whatever they happen to find along the road, in a trash can, or in a dumpster, and are rarely found more than a mile from a water source, like a river or lake. When they aren't digging in dumpsters, they prefer insects, nuts, fish, fruits and grass. Skunks are pretty easy to spot since they are mostly black with their infamous white stripe stretching from their head all the way to their tail. Skunks are known for their great defense mechanism; a pungent odor they spray from their rear to detract predators and help them escape.

 

About the Black-tailed Prairie Dog (Cynomys ludovicianus)

 

The Black-tailed prairie dog is native to the great plains of the midwestern United States stretching up to Canada and down into Mexico. This particular prairie dog is believed to be the most abundant prairie dog in terms of population in all of North America. They are tannish with a white belly and their tail is tipped with black hairs, hence the name. On average they grow to 15in long and can weigh 2-3 pounds. These little rodents can make dens and travel corridors up to 15 feet deep.
