HAPPY VALLEY, Ariz. -- A spotted skunk was recently caught doing a handstand at the Saguaro National Park in Arizona, the Interior Department said on its Instagram site.

The agency said this "strange interaction" was captured by Saguaro's wildlife camera in Happy Valley, Ariz.

"Like the other three groups of skunks, spotted skunks are capable of spraying a strong unpleasant scent as a form of defense," the ageny says. "But before spraying, spotted skunks will sometimes go into a handstand and attempt to intimidate any would be aggressors like this skunk is doing with the wildlife camera."

The video was taken by the National Park Service camera.
