  1. Stink badger

    Stink badgers are not true badgers, but a genus of mammals belonging to the skunk family, the Mephitidae. There are only two extant species - the Palawan stink badger, and the Sunda stink badger or Teledu. They live only on western islands of the Malay Archipelago: Sumatra, Java, Borneo and on the Philippine island of Palawan; as well as many other, smaller islands in the region. Stink badgers are named for their resemblance to badgers and for the foul-smelling secretions that they expel from anal glands in self-defense. Stink badgers were traditionally thought to be related to true badgers in the of the weasel family of carnivores, the Mustelidae, but recent DNA analysis so strongly suggests they share a more recent common ancestor with skunks that experts have now placed them in the skunk family of carnivores, the Mephitidae. The two existing species are different enough from each other for the Palawan stink badger to be sometimes classified in its own genus, Suillotaxus.
