Stinkers: The Ten Yucky and Smelliest Animals in the World

Here’s a list of the world’s 10 smelliest creatures.

1. Striped Polecat

Fact: Their bodies are smelly – Firstly, they are not skunks, but have almost similar appearance. They have anal glands, which can make their bodies smelly as well produce smelly spray too. Their anal glands smell so bad hat you can smell these animals from 1,5 miles away. They produce stinky bodies and horrible spray at the same time.

2. Skunks

Fact: Their bodies are smelly but not that horrible – What makes them so smelly is actually when their spray they use for defense if feel threatened. That’s very horrible that most animals who have sense of smell leave them alone. It can also makes human blind temporarily and can be smelt from 1,5 miles away. Luckily,they don’t like to spray frequently, just for defense only.

3. Millipedes

Fact: Their bodies are smelly – Few species have extremely smelly bodies that you can’t imagine.  Extreme case: Their smell is so bad that it can kill a mouse.

4. Musk Ox

Fact: Their bodies are smelly but not that horrible – What makes them smelly is their urine, they use to mark their territories during mating season. When they mark their territories, the smelly urine gets matted into their hairy bellies and the smell was so bad that it can make you teary eyed.

5. Elephants

Fact: Their body are smelly – Especially the male elephants, their musk is smelly 1000 times than goat or pig. Their smell can easily make you vomit.

6. Bombardier Beetles

Fact: Their not smelly at all – If they feel threatened, they spray boiling stinky liquid and  chemically toxic bodily fluids from the direction of any would-be predator for defense. That liquid smells so horrible and can cause some serious woe and can melt you.

7. Wolverines

Fact: Their bodies are smelly but not that horrible – They have special gland that can secrete fluid to mark their territories.That secreted fluid smells so horrible that makes them smelly.

8. Hooker’s Sea Lion


Fact: Their bodies are not smelly – But their breath smells so horrible, the most smelliest breath among animals.

9. Vultures

Fact: Their bodies are not smelly
What makes them smelly is actually their poop, which smells so horrible. They poop on their feet to keep cool especially during summer, that’s why they are smelly.

10. Giant Petrels

Fact: Their bodies are not smelly – But these birds frequently vomit, and their vomit smell so horrible.

    Great article.I really like it. Although the Milipede caught me by surprise. And the real reason why wolverine stinks is because he doesn’t wipe, how can you wipe with those claws. :P

    this shit is being reposted over and over again..

    someone without any research jsut typed a list.. and all the idiots are repeating this like some grand scientific discovery in zoology.

    Sometimes you have to wonder.. dp people really think they learn things from i-net? (not in this smell case, this is obviously not anything of value, but in general…)
