I knew about the different colours, I want an albino one (thought it'd look more like a cat, LOL). But finding a breeder is hard enough, so most likely I'd settle for a regular coloured one... It'd still be cool to show off a skunk!
I red a bit about their diet and watched some videos on YouTube of pet skunks (to get an idea of what they can be like) and they remind me of big ferrets. Their diet seems similar to ferrets, too (they are related, weasles and skunks)... Proper veggies and meats. My boyfriend is getting a new job soon, as am I, and as my boyfriend put it, "We will have more money than we know what to do with," considering we live in an apartment and have set amounts of payment for most things, we'll have the extra... And I promised myself if I ever got another ferret (or a skunk, LOL) that I'd feed it "the right way," (no cat food / ferret chow, actual fresh food). I think the only thing that'd be a pain is litter-training, but it can be done.
I saw that it IS legal in our state, just have to find a breeder. Maybe I'll break down and get one shipped. It won't be until after we get our jobs, so we have a little time (he's recovering from surgery, so he can't work quite yet). Just wanted to get the search started.
