  • Shape
  • Badgers are low to the ground and wide. Though they are not fast, this shape helps them with strength and hiding.
  • This shape is typical of the Mustelidae (weasel) family.

  • Eyes
  • Like most predators, badgers have eyes located on the front of their head.
  • This allows for binocular vision where they can pinpoint location of their prey.

The white behind their eyes reflects extra light in dark tunnels to help them see. (Kind of the opposite of black under football players eyes…)

  • Badgers are the fastest digging animal on earth
  • A badger can dig faster than a human with a shovel.

  • Like many creatures that are low to the ground, badgers have a strong sense of smell to capture prey underground.

  • Stripe
  • It is somewhat unclear why badgers have stripes on their face. It may be to reflect light into their eyes in dimly lit holes, or to distract prey.
