Badger Class

Information about Badgers

Badgers have lived in Britain for at least 250,000 years. There are a quarter of a million badgers in the UK.

Badgers live in groups of up to 14 adults. The badgers dig out and live in a maze of underground tunnels called a sett.

Badgers like to build their setts into sloping ground in woodlands

Badgers are rarely seen during the day, but forage for food at night. Their favourite foods are earthworms, insects, roots, fruits and berries. They may on occasion catch a young rabbit or even a frog!
