American Badger is a carnivorous mammal found in the northern parts of America. They live mostly on the plain and farmlands feeding on ground squirrels, rats and mice. They have strong claws which it uses to prey on its food.
They spend their life in solitary except during the breeding season. They weigh at a range of 4 to 12 kg with a life span of over 26 years. Its instinctive approach of studying the prey and cornering makes it an unique animal. They are not enlisted in the endangered species rather it helps to get rid of rodents.
