Eurasian Badger

About Eurasian Badger

Eurasian Badgers are nocturnal animals. They have burrows, called setts, usually found in woodland areas. These setts provide the badger with protection, and have many entrances and exits. The setts are handed down from one generation to the next, growing larger and ever more complex. A large sett may be over a century old.

Eurasian badgers are nocturnal, meaning that they hide during the day and hunt at night. They will eat just about anything they can find, though earthworms and insects are main staples in their diet.

Badgers do not hibernate during the winter but they do become dormant and sleepy. Before spring, the females give birth to up to five cubs.
