Albino striped skunk with a sibling
Though these petit Pepés may not look related, they are striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis) siblings—one with the usual markings and one albino. Their scientific name comes from the Latin for “noxious vapor,” an apt description for these weasels whose defensive spraying range will be up to twelve feet as adults. Nocturnal when fully grown, striped skunks still under parental care romp about during the day while their mother sleeps back at the den.
