Badger – “Meles meles”

Say hello to “Moxie” and “Sonic” our pair of adult Badgers. Be ready for a lot of interaction if the two are worked together – growling, barking and just a whole lot of “badgering” going on between the two! If alone, they use their thick claws to do what they do best, DIG – but always taking a moment to glance back at the camera for a good stare!
