Food Habits of the Skunk

Document Type

Abstract

In observation of the food habits of the birds of prey one can take advantage of the fact that food must be brought to the young in the nest. With the skunk, which is a nocturnal animal, many difficulties present themselves in gathering sufficient information on which to base a conclusion, and it must be confessed in the beginning that the results are rather of a negative than a positive character. Animals in captivity adapt themselves to their environment quickly and form habits which perhaps might not be normal when living under natural conditions. In making the observations on this animal extending over more than five years, the writer has used every means within his reach to acquire accurate information as to the natural food habits.
