Badger facts for children

The badger is a short-legged, burrowing mammal about three feet long. Badgers have coarse silvery gray or brownish hair on their bodies. Distinctive black and white stripes extend along their heads from the snout to the neck. In Europe and Asia, badgers live in woodlands and fields, but the American species live on open plains. They both live in deep burrows, where they sleep by day. At night, they come out and hunt for food. They eat mainly small animals, such as rats, mice and young rabbits, together with insects, snails, and some plant food such as berries and roots.
