There is an abundant population of Patagonian Skunks (Conepatus humboldtii) in the Valdes Peninsula and often they will be seen in areas of human activity. Such is the case in the area around Punta Delgada where they are easily observed. This species of skunk is not as social as others and is usually seen alone and will almost exclusively occupy its den alone. The female has a 42 day gestation period and will give birth to 2-5 offspring. The babies will nurse on the three pairs of teats the mother offers and after just three months of nursing, will feed on their own.
