skunk with white tail?
I saw a pretty (if skunks can be pretty) skunk that was unusual. It was at the side of the road and had been hit. It had a completely white bushy tail and was all white down its back. I thought it was albino at first because of the way it was positioned, I couldn't see any black at first. I held my breath and stopped to get a good look. It looked a lot like the pictures of the hooded or hog nose skunk in the link below but it also had a few small white spots down low on its sides. It didn't look anything like the pictures of spotted skunks I've seen. Can they cross? Does anyone know if we have hooded or hog nosed skunks in Missouri? Could a striped skunk have spots and a white tail?
