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.
