Southern Spotted Skunk

Spilogale angustifrons

Description:

The entire black body displayed white spots throughout the body. Some spots were so close that they appeared from a distance to be stripes. This species is nocturnal, mainly terrestrial (but climbs well), and omnivorous - feeding on insects, small mammals, fruit, grain, birds and bird eggs (Reid 1997).

Habitat:

Uncommon yet widespread in farmland, open woodland, and brush; open in dry, rocky areas. The species occurs from lowlands to 300 m (Reid 1997).

Notes:

This image was taken as part of a survey project by Paso Pacifico and partly sponsored by O.
