ABSTRACT
Badger, a rather short, thickset, fur-bearing mammal. Badgers have extremely powerful forelegs with long claws, which they use to dig their burrows. They are active mainly at night, when they leave their burrows to hunt for food. Badgers are named for the contrasting stripe of fur�the "badge"�on the forehead. The badge may be black or white, depending on the species.
