So…continuing with the woodland animal theme…

*hello!*

*hello!*

The European Badger (Meles meles), or Eurasian badger, is a mammal indigenous to most of Europe and to many parts of Asia. It is a member of the Mustelidae family, and so is related to the stoats, otters, weasels, minks and other badgers.

Badgers are nocturnal and spend the day in their setts, or extensive networks of tunnels dug in well-drained ground (or sometimes beneath buildings or roads). Setts give shelter from the weather and predators, including humans and dogs. Badgers are territorial, but can be found in groups often called clans.

Males are called boars and females sows; the young are cubs. Badgers live for up to 15 years (average 3 years) in the wild, and up to 19 years in captivity.
