|Inspired by my short tearm pet Dracula (and many other youtube skunks)|
Dancing with the skunk is based on the choreographie a skunk performs before it sprays.
I lived with a petskunk for a couple of weeks. It turned out my skunk was not very happy with me within the constellation. There are many kin of Skunk personalities but my skunk wanted to be a wild one.
Therefore, I had to find a better situation for him.
I missed him so I watched other pet skunks on Youtube. People claimed their skunks played and acted cute. Actually the skunks were performing their threatening dance, feeling as unconfortable as mine did.
The misreading of body language (consciously or unconsciously) is a result of suppressing reality to comfort the own needs. A behavior very common in the dating jungle as well. Projecting the personal wish into a potential significant other is something I watched and experienced many times.

if pet skunks could spray,
they would know that they're not playing
