It wouldn’t be a stink party without mentioning the most universally recognized sultan of stench: The skunk! Black, white, and giving everyone a fright, both man and beast have good reason to beat it when crossing paths with a skunk—the yellow, sulfur-infused liquid they spray can travel upwards of 15 feet! Surprisingly, skunks aren’t indiscriminate about letting the stink fly. The critters only carry five to six uses of the liquid, taking over a week to replenish. So, really, skunks spray when absolutely necessary.
