Mydaus meliceps

The Sunda Stink Badger (Mydaus javanensis, also called the Javan Stink Badger, Teledu, Malay Stink Badger and Indonesian Stink Badger) is a mammal endemic to Java. There is strong DNA evidence that the genus Mydaus is not a member of the badger family at all, but are in fact Old World relatives of the skunks.
