Dog badger is a dog badger. It is a national second-class protected animal and has been listed in the World Conservation Union (IUCN) 2008 Red List of endangered species. Badger is a kind of mammal, which generally operates in spring and autumn. It has a fierce temperament, hibernates, digs holes and lives in an omnivorous manner. It breeds once a year, with 2-5 offspring per fetus. It has a wide range of habitats, such as forests, shrubs, fields, lakes and so on. It is distributed in most areas of the Eurasian continent.
Badgers are most active in spring and autumn, generally starting from 8-9 p.m. at night and returning to the cave around 4 p.m. Badgers have the habit of hibernating. They dig holes and live in them. The tunnel is a few meters to more than ten meters long, with vertical and horizontal branches. In spring and autumn, temporary caves are built at the earth hills and shrubs near the farmland. They enter the cave to rest during the day and come out to look for food at night. These caves are short and straight, with rough tunnel, small nest and thin grass mat. There is only one exit.
Badger has a fierce temperament, but does not take the initiative to attack livestock and people. When pressed by people or hounds, it often makes a short "feeding, feeding" sound. At the same time, it can stand up and fight back with sharp claws and canine teeth. Badger is omnivorous. It feeds on plant roots, stems, fruits, frogs, earthworms, small fish, sand lizards, insects (larvae and pupae) and small mammals. It likes to eat leftover food from wolves in the grassland. It damages freshly sown seeds and maturing corn, peanuts, potatoes, sweet potatoes, beans and melons during crop sowing and maturity.
