Badger Lovers Gifts
Badgers are short-legged omnivores in the family Mustelidae which also includes the otters, polecats, weasels and wolverines. The 11 species of badger are grouped in three subfamilies: Melinae (9 Eurasian badgers), Mellivorinae (the honey badger or ratel) and Taxideinae (the American badger). Badgers have rather short, fat bodies, with short legs for digging. They have elongated weasel-like heads with small ears. Their tail vary in length depending on species: the stink badger has a very short tail, while the ferret badger's tail can be 46-51 cm (18-20 in) long, depending on age. They have black faces with distinctive white markings, gray bodies with a light-coloured stripe from head to tail, and dark legs with light coloured underbellies.
