Badgers walk on their toes with a characteristic rolling gait. Short legged and strong with long claws for digging. Badgers are territorial throughout most of the year. The American species is the most carnivorous of all badgers, digs out chipmunks, ground hogs, ground squirrels, pocket gophers, mice and rabbits; it will eat carrion and invertebrates and also caches food. Rattlesnakes are eaten when available but the badgers do not eat the rattlesnake head. Carrion is probably an important winter food when the frozen ground is difficult or impossible to dig in. They are naturally protected from flying dirt by transparent membranes that protect their eyes and stiff hairs that keep their ear canals clean. They use their back feet to kick the loose dirt out of the way. Badgers dig in pursuit of prey and then expand tunnels into sleeping burrows. Badgers are mainly active at night, and tend to be inactive during the winter months. They are not true hibernators, but spend much of the winter sleeping. The American badger has been seen hunting cooperatively with coyotes, but they have also been known to kill and eat coyotes, and vice versa. The larger species of badger can run at speeds up to 19 mph to chase down prey for short distances.
