Badgers are easly recognized by their facial black and white stripes. This common mammal is nocturnal, which makes it difficult to spot. Badgers live in groups in underground setts inherited from their parents. The setts form a set of tunnels with multiple exits, sleeping chamber and toilet. Favourite food includes peanuts, earthworms and slugs.
