Badger Proofing & Prevention Lincolnshire
Badgers are one of the most numerous and widespread animals in Britain. They are usually nocturnal animals but have been observed foraging in the late afternoon, usually in late summer. They are rather social animals and can live in groups of 6-20.
Badgers are bear like with short powerful legs and a stocky body. They have long claws and a short stumpy tail. They are generally black and grey with white stripes.
They are omnivores and belong to the family Mustelidae which includes polecats, weasels, otters and wolverines.
There are around 11 different species of badger which are grouped in these three subfamilies: Melinae, Taxideinae and Mellivorinae
