A fun image of these two American Badger cubs taken back in May. The three cubs and their mom provided a couple of weeks of fun and a photo opportunity that does not come along often. The cubs would appear for an hour or so each morning and spend time romping around and playing.
The behavior here was often repeated with one seeming to rear back and roar although I never did hear a sound come from them.
The American Badger is ferocious in its hunting ability choosing snakes, prairie dogs, mice and other residents of plains-like areas where it lives. It is considered an endangered species in parts of Canada and a threatened species in some locations in the United States.
