Such comparisons are important to further our understanding of hog-nosed skunk ecology as space-use patterns can differ between locations (Castillo et al, 2011).

Home range patterns of hog-nosed skunks were studied between July 2008 and November 2010.
We captured 40 hog-nosed skunks during the study period.
We tracked radio-collared hog-nosed skunks on foot with a handheld VHF receiver (Communications Specialists, Inc.
When the MANOVA was conducted using only hog-nosed skunks for which we examined space-use patterns (n = 14), it revealed males were significantly larger than females ([F.
Home range sizes for hog-nosed skunks were similar to those reported for Conepotus chinga by Castillo et al.
Given this distinction, it is possible the large degree of intrasexual overlap found in this study might be facilitated by the inability of hog-nosed skunks to detect other individuals unless they are relatively close (LariviEre and Messier, 1996b).
