Badgers grow to around 90cm in length and have characteristic black and white stripes on their head. These animals are nocturnal and are rarely seen in urban areas. They spend a lot of their time in their ‘sett’ – a large maze of tunnels and passageways where they live. Nevertheless, during the summer months they sometimes wander into gardens and across roads looking for food.
