Even though they are called Sunda stink badgers, they are not closely related to true badgers but more of a relative of the skunks. They have bodies similar to badgers but much smaller and covered by a dark brown or black coat with a white stripe running from head to tail. They also have a scent gland that secretes milky green substances that can be sprayed at a predator to get them blinded.
They are generally nocturnal and forage during the night. While during the daytime, they will stay in their burrows, and the entrance is covered with twigs and dry leaves. They often consume worms, insects, carrion, and bird eggs.
