Infamous for their unique defense mechanism, skunks are one smelly creature. This unique critter releases a scent to ward off predators and stay safe, and it not only smells offensive but can blind predators (or you, if you startle it) from up to 10 feet away. It's important not to approach skunks if you see them tearing up your garden and surrounding landscape because they can scratch or spray you.
