Chai and Macha    Rescued in 2014.

These skunks have two stripes down each side joining into one at the back of the head.They are omnivorous and eat mostly insects, worms, snails, and mice. Most predatory animals leave the skunk alone for fear of being sprayed, except for the great horned owl which has a poor-to-nonexistent sense of smell. Striped skunks are pretty elusive, and these two are often hard to spot.
