Like humans, they are omnivorous, although unlike us, they eat several hundred earthworms every night. Badgers are social creatures and live together in largeunderground sets, comprised of a series of interlocking tunnels withnest chambers, toilets and several entrances. They inherit these setsfrom their parents, while always expanding and refining them. The resulting huge tunnel systems are, in some cases, centuries old.

  8. 8. The European Badger The European Badger (Meles meles) is a species of badger of the genus Meles, native to almost all of Europe. It is classed as Least Concern for extinction by the IUCN, due to its wide distribution and large population. The European badger is a social burrowing animal which lives on a wide variety of plant and animal food. It is very fussy over thecleanliness of its burrow, and defecates in latrines. Cases are knownof European badgers burying their dead family members. Although ferocious when provoked, a trait which was once exploited for the blood sport of badger-baiting, the European badger is generally apeaceful animal, having been known to share its burrows with other species such as rabbits, red foxes and raccoon dogs. Although itdoes not usually prey on domestic stock, the species is nonethelessalleged to damage livestock through spreading bovine tuberculosis .
