Random Mammal Photo - A CONGREGATION OF BADGERS


My friend Nicholas sent me this pic of a Badger party in someone's backyard. The European Badger (Meles meles) is found across most of Europe. Unlike the American Badger (Taxidea taxus), which is an aggressive carnivore, the European Badger is a much more docile and omnivorous (eating plants and animals) creature.

I'm glad skunks don't have parties.

Wow. Wow! Once I went out back to get my cat in from a serious downpour and I looked up at the roof of the neighbor's garage where she liked to hung out. Instead of Jolene I saw a possum sitting under the awning between two huge raccoons. You could tell they put a moratorium on the fight until the rain subsided and then the possum was dead meat. It looked appropriately scared.
