Badgers are large, bulky relatives of weasels that have coarse fur ranging in colour from grey to yellow-brown. They bear a distinctive white stripe that runs from the snout up across the skull. They have a broad, flat body, short powerful legs and long, scythe-like claws. Badgers are tough, mean, voracious predators. They eat anything and they're active year-round. They dig dens in hillsides. The dens are used for wintering and for raising their young.
Badgers are a real problem for mice in the Territories. If one finds a mouse settlement, it will devastate it - tearing through the defenses and devouring the mice within.
