Ecology and Behaviour
Badgers are shy, nocturnal animals that live in underground chambers connected by a network of tunnels known as a sett.
They live in close social groups or clans, each of which has its own clearly defined territory.
Their diet consists largely of earthworms and insects, cereals and fruit with a few birds and small mammals although this varies slightly throughout the year.
Their hearing and sense of smell are well developed but their eyesight is poor.
