RP , you probably also saw one of these \O .
Zorillas are also called " striped polecat " . It resembles the American skunk .

As per Wikipedia :

The striped polecat (Ictonyx striatus, also called the African polecat, zoril, zorille, zorilla, Cape polecat, and African skunk) is a member of the family Mustelidae (weasels), though in actuality, it somewhat resembles a skunk.[3] The name "zorilla" comes from the word "zorro", which in Spanish means "fox". It lives predominantly in dry and arid climates, such as the savannahs and open country of Central, Southern, and sub-Saharan Africa, excluding the Congo basin and the more coastal areas of West Africa.[2][4]
