It’s a yellow-grey animal with back spots, long body and an even longer tail, its paws are naked. Its legs and nose are black, and it has two white stripes that go on either side of its body, from the top of its head to its neck. It is very similar to a skunk, and it also defends itself by spraying its attacker with a foul smelling liquid that comes out of his anus.
There are two kinds. Both can be found from Arica to Coquimbo, and Magallanes.
From sea level to the 3800 meters high.
