Did you know that you can have a pet skunk in 17 states in the US? Unfortunately New York is not one of them. Lots of people don’t really like skunks, mainly because, well, they smell pretty bad. Even when they don’t spray you, skunks have a gland that continuously produce that strong smell. Not many people get close enough to see that these black and white critters are freakin’ cute! They’re so fluffy and they kind of waddle when they walk (as babies). They’re highly intelligent creatures and very curious so if you want to have one as a pet, be prepared to hide away anything it could potentially get into.
