A badger can reach speeds of 30 miles per hour (48 km/h), but typically runs at about 15 miles per hour (24 km/h).
Badgers are built for speed. They have long, strong legs and large feet with sharp claws that enable them to run fast. Their bodies are compact and muscular, which helps them to jump and sprint over long distances. A badger’s running style is similar to that of a dog; it moves at a trot, with little or no knee lift.
Badgers are carnivores that eat small animals such as mice, voles and rabbits. They also eat earthworms and insects such as beetles, grasshoppers and crickets.
