Badgers are carnivorous mammals and is a common name for any animal of three subfamilies, in the family Mustelidae: the same mammal family as ferrets, weasels, otters, and several other types of weasels. Typical badgers like Meles, Arctonyx, Taxidea and Mellivora species are short-legged and heav…y-set. The lower jaw is articulated to the upper by means of a transverse condyle firmly locked into a long cavity of the cranium, so that dislocation of the jaw is all but impossible. This enables the badger to maintain its hold with the utmost tenacity, but limits the jaw movement to hinging open and shut or sliding from side to side. The behavior of badgers differs by family, but all shelter underground, living in burrows called setts. Some are solitary, moving from home to home, while others are known to form clans. Clan size varies between 2 to 15 badgers. Badgers are fierce and will protect themselves and their young at any cost. Badgers are capable of fighting off much larger animals like wolves, coyotes and bears. There are many different types of badgers but one of the most common is the European badger. This mammal has 2 black stripes going down it's face to scare away predator's. Badgers live in 'setts' which consist of a series of tunnels and 'rooms' called 'chambers'. Badgers are omnivores and eat earthworms, fruit and many of them enjoy peanuts. The females are slightly smaller than the males reaching roughly about just under 1 meter. Badgers can be found in wooded areas and are commonly seen in gardens of homes at night. (they are nocturnal). (MORE)
The first year the Badgers played football was 1889. They played two games that season and lost both.
\nBadgers take considerable care over their grooming and scent plays an important part in the social hierarchy too. Adults set scent on each other and on cubs - in this way a composite smell characteristic of the whole community can create the smell of the group. This smell will be different from th…at of neighboring groups and helps recognition of friends and strangers. (MORE)
\n\nPredators\n. \nAdult badgers have few natural enemies. Badgers are fierce animals and will protect themselves and their young at all costs. Badgers are capable of fighting off much larger animals such as wolves, coyotes and bears, but badger cubs are sometimes killed and eaten by foxes or they …may also be taken by large birds of prey like golden eagles and buzzards. In other countries, other predators which may take cubs are wolves, lynx, bears, wolverines and eagle owls.. (MORE)
Badgers have sensitive whiskers on either side of their faces. Theyuse their whiskers to feel their way around in dark tunnels.
back in the 1800s, miners dug tunnels into hillsides as they searched for lead and then lived in them during the winter months to keep warm. This reminded people of badgers and Wisconsin became known as the badger state.
Basically, any way it has an advantage over another animal in the same habitat. Like having long nails and sharp teeth.
A badger looks much like a skunk. A badger does not have a whitestripe running down its back, though. A badger might have a whitestripe on the face and the rest of its body is dark brown or black.
You mean Eurasian Badgers? Eurasian Badgers have few predators and competitors. They are known for being as tenacious as hell and they are very durable. Eurasian Badgers compete with Raccoon Dogs, Red Foxes, Eurasian Lynx and the Wolverine. Brown Bears, Siberian Tigers, Wolves, and Eurasian Lynx are… the only carnivores that are brave enough to prey on badgers. Red Foxes may prey on young badgers, but adult badgers mostly dominate foxes. Eurasian Lynx may pose a threat to badgers, but killing one might be hard. Raccoon Dogs may extensively use badger setts for shelter, but badgers will kill or drive out Raccoon Dogs if they overstay their welcome. As for American Badgers, they also have few predators. But because they are smaller and weaker than Eurasian Badgers, they might have slightly more predators. Predators of the Eurasian Badger are Cougars, wolves, coyotes, bobcats, bears and Canadian lynx. (MORE)
No specifically a badger is a mustelid, a member of the weasel family along with ferrets, wolverines, and otters. . They are all carnivores, like a feline (cat) or a canine (dog), but felines, canines, and mustelids are all carnivores yet the three groups are unrelated.
The honey badger-also known as ratal- is part of the Mustelidae family. Honey badgers are not anything to do with badgers, they are only called honey badgers because in french, badger means the word "dig", honey badgers are very extreme when it comes to claws and teeth. Claws are used for digging an…d also breaking into a bee hives, that's where the name HONEY comes from. This species favorite food is honey and even LOTS of stings NEVER now and NEVER will stop the honey badger getting its honey. The most fearless animal in the world, stealing meals off lions to killing the feared monitor lizard, is the deadly honey badger. A honey badger is a member of the mustelid family(think weasel and mink).They are native to Africa.They are very ill tempered(much like the North American Badger) and are quite fearless. Here is a link http://www.honeybadger.com/ that will explain them in more deatil. (MORE)

Badgers are not considered rodents. They are classified in theorder Carnivora, even though they are omnivores. Rodents are in theorder Rodentia.
Badgers are primarily omnivores. Eurasian Badgers have one of the most varied diet of all animals in the Carnivora family, only Raccoons and bears have a more varied diet. Eurasian Badgers primarily eat earthworms, often digging up gardens for them. Eurasian Badgers are often blamed for doing this. …Eurasian Badgers also eat roots, seeds, fungi, blackberries, strawberries, apples, rabbits, voles, shrews, slugs, snails, mice and hedgehogs. Eurasian Badgers can dig with remarkable speed. Eurasian Badgers also occasionally eat snakes, lizards, frogs, and birds, like the occasional poultry. Eurasian Badgers have also very occasionally killed lambs. Because of their durability and tenacity, Eurasian Badgers have few predators. Eurasian Lynx (most likely a competitor), wolves, Siberian Tigers and bears (black and brown) may pose a threat. But Eurasian Badgers themselves can be vicious competitors: Eurasian Badgers often let Raccoon Dogs in their dens. But the dogs have to be careful not to overstay their welcome, otherwise they will be badly injured, drived out or killed. There has been cases of Red Foxes being attacked when they encounter: one incident shows a Red Fox going up to a bowl, only to be attacked and grabbed at the tail by a Eurasian Badger, thrashing it around and the fox ran away. Eurasian Badgers have also been known to drive vixens out of their dens and destroying the litter without eating them. (MORE)

The miners got called the badger state cause they dug holes in our earth just like badgers.
While it is legal to keep these nasty creatures as pets in the United States, it is not a good idea. They are nasty creatures that would just as soon rip your hand off as let you feed it. For the record, I have never seen a badger in Wisconsin.
Badgers recognize other badgers by their scent and by checking their passports and any other forms of iD
Wisconsin is not an object; it is one of the states in the USA, North America.
Yes. Most species of badgers are threatened or endangered. In many species we do not have enough data to prove that they are present in large numbers.
Bo Ryan, he's in his 9th season with the badgers. The badgers have only lost 11 out of 165 games at the Kohl Center with him as the coach. He is the second longest tenured head coach in the big ten.
Well, if you are asking if badgers are extinct, then, no. I'd be very sad if they were extinct. They are still alive and thriving in the rural ares of Britain :D
I would venture to say that there are Badgers in Wisconsin. A small animal also referred to as a Wolverine.
i think 106 - 0 in 1890 against Whitewater Normal School (now it's University of Wisconsin-Whitewater) but the big ten championship on Dec 1, 2012 (70 - 31) has to be up there in more recent years.
Has the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl and the Wisconsin Badgers won the Rose Bowl in the same year?

There was a team in the NFL known as the Milwaukee Badgers from 1923-1927 who played the Packers during each year of their existence, so if you saw anything that referred to "Packers vs. Badgers" that's probably what it meant. It's doubtful that the Packers have ever played UW-Madison's football tea…m, but if they did, it would have only been an exhibition game and probably took place no later than the 1930s. The Packers used to play the WI Badgers in exhibition games in the sixties. They Also played the college All Stars and I believe that they lost to both. BobbyG Packer fan from birth. (MORE)

I am guessing you mean the verb, not the furry animal..... Badger = Annoy, nag, frustrate, harass, heckle, tease, pester....
Badgers life in sets, so if you make sure that you have lots of piles of leaves, they like dog food so you can put some out. but be careful not to put too much out as that might attract unwanted mammals like rats and mice.
They are infected through the droppings of cattle who have TB, when the droppings are near a badger's set. Dung flies lay their eggs on the droppings, and badgers look in the infected stools for the fly eggs, and eat them, infecting themselves with TB. Then the badgers, in turn, pass it on to other …cattle who come near their sets. (MORE)
