1 Have you ever seen a badger? At first glance, it looks very much like a skunk. Both animals have small heads, beady eyes, pointy snouts, short limbs, and stout bodies. Both animals can emit foul-smelling liquids at their enemies when intimidated. Yet, between the two, there are still some significant differences. One notable difference between the two animals is that most of the badgers' white markings are on their heads only. Skunks' white markings often extend all the way to their tails or onto other parts of their bodies.
2 Badgers are nocturnal animals. That means they are mostly active at night. After sunset, they come out of their underground burrows to look for things to eat. Given that they are not picky diners, they are quite flexible when it comes to foodstuffs. Their dinner menus may consist of small animals such as earthworms, birds, fish, rodents, and snakes. Or they eat just fruits, nuts, and roots. Notably, there is one particular badger species that also likes to supplement its diet with honey. We call that species the ratel badger or the honey badger.
