    The badger belongs to the same family as stoats, otters, weasels, pine martens and ferrets. Badgers live in large family groups in an underground home called a sett and will often use the same one for generations. Their diet consists of small mammals, ground-nesting birds' eggs, fruit, roots, bulbs and earthworms. They are capable of eating several hundred earthworms a night ! They are also one of the only predators of Hedgehogs - their thick skin and long claws help them to get past the hedgehog prickles. The badger lives throughout most of Europe and parts of Western Asia.
