TRUTH !!
Skunks produce an oily spray from anal glands as a defense when threatened.
The skunk's spray's unpleasant smell is due to a mixture of
sulphur-containing compounds called thiols, sometimes referred to as
mercaptans. These compounds are also used as a safety measure to provide a
smell to the odorless natural gas. Sulphur compounds are also responsible
for unpleasant aromas from rotten eggs and garlic.
