American Badger

Taxidea Taxus


The badger is a short-legged, long yellowish-grey hair animal. Its head is marked by black and white stripes.


The American Badger inhabits the open grasslands and pastures of the Prairies.


We encountered this badger when leaving the Grassland National Park, SK. We were not expecting more true wildlife and were truly surprised to watch dirt being shoveled out of a hole on the side of the road. We stopped then to see that typical black and white face emerged from the hole.
