Striped Skunk Eating Grasshopper

I photographed this Striped Skunk Eating Grasshopper at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

The Striped Skunk is predominantly an insectivore, but it is flexible enough to eat various animals and even plants.

Baby Skunk Charging Me

I was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma when I stopped for the restroom. As I was going into the restroom, I saw this Baby Skunk. The Skunk saw me and charged at me. It backed away and then charged again. It did this several times. I went and got my camera and got a few photos. I didn’t see any other Skunks around.
