Skunks-To Tell Sex-How can I tell the sex of a skunk without picking it up, or going close? How can I carry the young skunks home after digging them out of their dens? I donít want to get scented.
I do not know of any way to tell the sex of the animals except by a close examination. The females are smaller generally and run more largely to black than the males, but that is not sufficient to enable one to pick out the females. You can carry the young in a box or in a sack. If the odor is very objectionable, I would advise you do not go into skunk farming.
