Badgers have a stocky build with short legs, a large head, and a black and white coat.

They weigh between 11 and 25 pounds. European badgers are primarily nocturnal but can also be active during the day.

Badgers are omnivorous and eat a variety of items including small animals, insects, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. They are known for their impressive digging abilities which they use to find food and create burrows.
