  • Draw four legs attached to the body, using straight lines with small curves at the joints.
  • Add a tail by drawing a long, curved line that extends from the body.
  • Draw two small ears and a muzzle on the skunk’s head. The ears should be small and pointed, and the muzzle should be a small triangle shape.
  • Add details such as eyes, nose, and stripes. Draw the eyes as two small circles with a small dot inside for the pupil. The nose should be a small oval shape. To create the skunk’s stripes, draw several thin lines that run down the back and sides of the body.

About the Skunk

A skunk is a small mammal with black and white fur. It has a strong, smelly spray that it uses to protect itself from danger.

Skunks live in North and South America and are nocturnal, meaning they are active at night. They are omnivores, which means they eat both plants and animals.

Skunks are known for their scent, but they are also good climbers and swimmers. They are shy creatures and will only use their smelly spray as a last resort.
