Badgers – Fact file
Badgers are nocturnal animals which means they sleep in the day and come out at night. The female badger is called a 'sow' and the male is a 'boar'. Usually badgers make several different noises including snorts, growls and screams.
What do badgers look like?
Badgers are mammals that have black and white stripes along their heads. Their bodies are covered in black and white fur. They have short legs but can run fast if they need to. They use their feet to help them dig tunnels in the dirt. Many badgers can grow to nearly a meter in length.
Where do badgers live?
Badgers mainly live in the countryside but sometimes they visit people’s gardens looking for food. All badgers live in setts. This is an underground burrow that they dig using their claws. Many live in family groups. Their burrows have long tunnels with one large room for sleeping in. Some setts are hundreds of years old. Most setts can be recognised by the great mounds of excavated earth surrounding the entrances.
What do badgers eat?
As badgers are nocturnal, they hunt for food at night and sleep during the day. Badgers will eat most things but mostly like to eat worms. They use their sharp claws to find the worms hidden in the soil. Badgers will also eat small mice, slugs, fruit and nuts.
Did you know?
The majority of badgers practice good housekeeping, to prevent a build-up of fleas and lice.
